Abstract [en]

Living, working and playing for over 50 per cent of the global population takes place in cities. In recent years, organization scholars who study cities have become interested in how organizing are translated into ongoing actions and how these actions are assembled in the city context. They have pointed out that organizations perform strategizing, designing and organizing, directing readers’ attention to ongoing movements in and around organizations. The present paper describes city development as a situated practice and proposes a conceptual vocabulary comprehensive enough to catch the complexity of strategic endeavors such as performing a ‘city of culture’. Our group of researchers followed the materialization of a large development-culture initiative, attempting to understand how organizing and strategizing were shaped in the context of this initiative. As a way to analyze ongoing actions, we refused to treat the city as a stable and separate entity; rather, we saw the city as a ‘meshwork’; heterogeneous assemblies emerging on its terrain. Public and private initiatives worked in tandem, in concert and contest, becoming repeatedly translated into ‘projectified’ practices. ‘Projectifying’ and ‘projecting’ city development is thus an attempt to shape and form what can be named ‘projective cities’. Such a projective city is comprised of multiple projects, multiple arenas, and multiple forces – entangled together.
