Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project investigates how the new segment has placed the drug addicts in an aberrant and stigmatized position, and how it has influenced the location of the injection room and the physical surroundings on Plads til Alle. This study shows that the new segment of residents and the drug addicts use the urban space in different ways. The behaviour of drug addicts in the public space varies from the norm, which places them in a deviated position. Because of the greater contrast between the two segments, the physi- cal characteristics of the drug addicts have been more distinct. This leads to a further stig- matization of the drug addicts. The residents of Inner Vesterbro wish to help the drug addicts and they are in favour of an injection room. However they don’t want the injection room placed too close to their homes, and therefore they have a NIMBY-attitude towards the injection room. This project concludes that, despite the dual nature of Plads til Alle, there are room for both drug addicts and the new segment of residents. After the establishment of the fence on Plads til Alle there are however no room for interaction between the new segment of residents and the drug addicts, and in Sennett optics there are no breeding ground for tolerance.
