Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


This project will examine which function temporary use has in both the neoliberal planning and in the struggle for the right to the city. In a time where the urban development is influenced by capitalitic forces and an interurban competition, the potential of temporary use of the space left over from planning, is more discussed than ever. This study seeks to understand temporary use as a phenomenon, and the underlying forces that affect the ways it is used strategically. It does so by analyzing a specific case: Godsbanearealet in Aarhus (an area formerly used for railway transport). The area is under transformation as it is being developed. Aarhus Municipality has chosen to preserve part of a temporary project on the area, and to collaborate with the temporary users Institut for (X). By analyzing documents and interviews with the Municipality and (X), and relate them to theory concerning temporary use, neoliberal planning and the right to the city, the study concludes that the temporary use on Godsbanearealet is used strategically by both parties. As of now, it is both a function in the neoliberal planning and in (X)’s struggle for the right to the city, and the collaboration between the Municipality an (X) is in many ways a win-win situation. However, the nature of the temporary use might change drastically, as it is integrated into the neoliberal planning system.
