Nokken - En klondike i systemet

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project addresses the question on how the planning process can be analysed and understood using the theories from Jürgen Habermas, Ulrich Beck and Anthony Giddens. Using the case of Nokken, the planning process will be analysed using the terms life world, system world, risk, trust/mistrust. We will try to show how the involvement of both the system world and the life world in the planning process, will help to reduce conflict and improve the outcome success. Nokken has from the time after the Second World War developed without much involvement from the municipality, which has resulted in an area with a much different expression then the rest of Copenhagen. In the beginning the area was used for fishermen’s tool sheds, but in time the sheds grow larger, and today the area consists mostly of houses that can be used for overnight stays all year around. Legally Nokken has for years been in a sort of limbo, and not before 2009, did the status of the area officially change from recreational area (that allowed the construction of tool sheds) to an area designated for allotments – but without the physical area being able to live up to the regulations specified in the Danish allotment act (kolonihaveloven). The project empirical background consists of qualitative interviews with the people from Nokken, representatives for the municipalities’ different departments and with the law firm hired by Nokken. From this we have defined the rationalities of the specific life world that exists at Nokken, and the system world in Copenhagen municipality, and the conditions these brings the communicative actions able to take place.
