This project seeks to understand how Nørrebrogade in Copenhagen, as a multifunctional city street can be understood and improved, following the Copenhagen municipal visions of usability. In doing so, the project takes on the task of developing a framework of methods that can encapsulate the special uses and atmospheres that a city street and its users create. Through a pragmatic approach to scientific research, the project enables the creation of a methodology consisting of differentiated methods. This focus on methods draws its inspiration from a wide array of city life observers and studies, from the post-war American scholars Jane Jacobs and Willam H. Whyte to the contemporary Danish architect Jan Gehl. The methods are then tested through an extensive analysis including; the physical dimensions, the business vitality, street activities, and pedestrian flow. Lastly the findings of the analysis will be summed up and evaluated through a discussion regarding the utilized methods ability to explain the phenomena that constitute the city life on the street.
