  • 4. Placemaking  H+  -­‐  ‘from  the   Ground  Up’  •  In  order  to  build  new  places,  one  must  understand  their  parKcular,   unique  idenKKes   –  Understand  ‘being’  and  ‘becoming’  and  ‘dwelling’  through  sensory/ phenomenology.     –  PercepKons  and  experiences  of  places,  sensory  experiences   –  DialecKcal  RelaKonship  formed  from  interacKons,  emplaced  experiences,   and  percepKons  of  people  and  places  =  DisKnct  urban  idenKKes  or    ‘cultural   DNA’  (Ghilardi  2001,  2009)  •  Translate  this  ethnological  knowledge  into  useful&  understandable   materials  for  non  specialists,  e.g.  cultural  maps,  images,  throughout   planning  processes.

  • 12. Ethnography  for  Cultural  Planning  •  “A   dynamic   and   adaptable   planning   process   is   to   a   large   extent   ‘sustainability’.   Not   only   the   physical   organiza<on   of   the   area,   but   also   its   ambience,   its   cultural  and  func<onal  content  have  been  dealt  with   in   order   to   create   The   Tolerant   City.   The   different   districts   open   themselves   to   a   great   variety   of   people   and   a   future   life   as   yet   unknown,   while   they   interweave   with   the   rest   of   Helsingborg,   psychologically  as  well  as  physically.”     (Helsingborgs  stad  2009,  p.104).
