About

På denne blog kan du følge med i processen for mit PhD projekt på Arkitektskolen Aarhus. Jeg vil bruge bloggen som en journal for projektet, hvorfor indlæggene vil variere meget i længde, fokus og skrivestil.  Herunder kan du læse mit seneste abstract fra et seminar i Bonn. Abstraktet er et kort sammenkog af projektets faglige indhold som bruges i forskningsverdenen. Jeg vil løbende indsætte mit nyeste abstract her på siden.

Håber du vil finde projektet og mine findings interessante at følge og debattere.

Abstract

Tourism is a significant and growing economic sector and a primary transformative driver.

My research focus is on the relationship between tourism and the coastal area of Ringkøbing Skjern municipality, an area with 3.3 mio annual tourists (2016). I am interested in the positive and negative interference that occurs in this intersection and I seek to explore and describe creative methods of investigating this field of interference.

This PhD is part of a trans-disciplinary research project that, through qualitative methods seeks to investigate and decode place-based behaviors, situations, controversies and potentials as a contribution to a more nuanced debate on coastal tourism development.

The hypothesis is that a transition within tourism development, from the predominant focus on tourist demand (often shortsighted trends) towards a focus on place based affordances is beneficial for both coastal communities as well as an attractor of tourist. We want to investigate how such tourism development can be used as positive spatial transformation strategies in urban coastal territories.

My entry to abovementioned is an explorative Research by Design approach. Central to the research is the establishment of a series of site-specific design experiments that will function as laboratories for collecting qualitative empirical data. In relation to abovementioned research focus it will be investigate how the design processes revolving the experiments affect the construction, destabilization and reorganization of actor networks and how design experiments articulates a discussion about the affordances of a place in relation to gazes.

Min baggrund

Jeg er uddannet arkitekt fra AAA i 2013, og har i flere år haft egen tegnestue/ kommunikationsbureau med fokus på kunst og arkitektur som katalysator for forandringer. Jeg er drevet af en interesse og nysgerrighed for hvordan vi interagerer med vores offentlige rum og hvordan vi engagerer os aktivt i udviklingen af vores byer – deraf etableringen af Bysgerrig, en tænketank for mere kreativitet i byudviklingen.
