Abstract [en]

The question in this paper is how strategies concerned with the development of the urban environment and economy create 'boundary spaces', that are physical but also social and mental, in which people translate, enact and materialize these strategies. Specifically, our study investigates the materialization of an urban strategy within the context of a development-cultural initiative by using a strategy-as-practice perspective enriched by narrative analysis. The narrative approach contributes to our understanding of how the social and material are successively entangled through urban spaces and weaved together and translated in praxis, practices and by practitioners. The 'boundary spaces' leave a clear mark in the townscape and aims to influence the ways of life in the city by outlining how the future could be built, since they become an interface transiting cultural, economic and social boundaries.
