Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


The project aims to gain an understanding of what the urban renovation of Hauser Plads has created, both from a physical and social perspective, and also how the design invites and rejects the different types of users? This is done by using Hauser Plads as a case study.

In order to get to a conclusion on our set problem, we used ethnographic fieldwork such as observations and interviews of Hauser Plads and its daily users. These observations and replies have been used in the analysis. The first part of the analysis examines how the design meet architect Jan Gel’s 12 quality criteria. The study showed that Hauser Plads works well from a physical perspective. The second part of the analysis examined how space is produced and how the different users use it and to this we used the philosopher, Henri Lefebvre. The analysis showed how certain groups had been given priority over others, and it also showed hidden conflicts between the different users of the space.

The discussions were about how some users have not been taken into account in connection with the renovation. Through fieldwork, analysis and discussion it can be concluded that some users have been excluded in the renewal of Hauser Plads to instead prioritize other users. The planning is created from physical ideas, and therefore there has been a lack of
consistency between the designed and lived life.
