Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The project analyses if gentrification is also taking place in, or has been taken place in other cities' quarters than the ones of the metropolises (New York, London, etc.) who often are the basis for hypothesis and theories on gentrification. After a discussion of approaches, Roskilde as a medium sized city and here especially the quarter Skt. Jørgensbjerg are taken into focus for the case study. A questionnaire and its analyse help to draw a picture of the quarter and its inhabitants. In the conclusion the reader might find an answer to the cardinal question - is/was it kind gentrification in this small quarter?
