How to think about a place not yet

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


My PhD studies are tied to the research project The evolutionary periphery and will investigate the planning and pre-construction phase of the research facility ESS in Lund. Here the planning relates to future implications on the science community on a world scale, but also to the scale of immediate vicinity in form of local neighborhoods. As temporality and time dependent potential in urban planning process vary depending on the scale of interaction or conflict more analysis is needed about the intersection of such sometimes conflicting interests. Through recognizing gaps and openings in an inert planning process, latent possibility for visualization by artistic research methods will be taken advantage of, and in formulation and application of architectural and artistic intervention methods the affordances and intrinsic potential of the processes will be investigated. Within the project the prerequisites and temporal assumptions active in the planning process will be problematized as well as the shifting definition of periphery. An analysis of how the operative actors define themselves, which phases and concepts that are used at different levels in the planning process, and a clarification of how a variety of scales are used at various critical moments will be formulated.

The project Methods for exploring potential in urban evolutionary process, aims to identify opportunities to influence the planning process (within its temporal extent) and to formulate research methods within the borders of the planning and urban evolutionary process. Here the planning rhetoric is studied, and how various stakeholders’ arguments are formulated. This is problematized through on-site interventions. As part of the project collaboration with Learning Site Audible Dwelling has been placed on Brunnshög where investigations will be made throughout May and June, 2013.
