Abstract [en]

This case study is dealing with a new city district in Uppsala and its potential for social interaction asking: how can visions regarding social development in Uppsala be implemented on the Field of Rosendal through its public spaces? The question is answered by using a territorial approach interviewing informants in the entire city being active in meeting places, concerning their view on social meetingplace and furthermore by analysing the zoning plan of the Rosendal area, mapping what public spaces that are planned, The study shows that Rosendal has great potential both in being in a strategic postition and having many types resources in the area, above all many green areas. The study however suggest that Rosendal needs to develop more public spaces with few threshholds such as limitating costs, opening hours and degree of specialisation of the place and safeguarding the cultural heritage that there is.
