Knowledge production in the Urban Development Process Mitte Altona. 2017

Master Theses

In the past decades urban development and planning has become more inclusive towards a broader range of interdisciplinary professional and non-professional actors as well as their various practices. Yet, the integration of different knowledge resources within the processes of urban development occurs to be challenging. The thesis-project »Knowledge Production in the Urban Development Process Mitte Altona« issues the terms and agencies of knowledge production within urban development. Aiming to identifiy the challenges and their determining factors, various modes of knowledge production are investigated using different case studies. Thereby concentrating on heterogeneous actors and different spatial settings, which frame the processes of knowledge production.
Based on a detailed research on the historical and regulatory framework of »Mitte Altona« as well as a discourse analysis on the subject of knowledge the work provides a multi-faceted perspective on the investigation of knowledge production in urban development processes.
