2013–2016

Project Description

Inner-city neighbourhoods are often charged a double task; firstly nurturing creative socio-economic places yielding new practices of wealth creation and secondly, lessening social polarisation by constituting places of social and ethnic integration. Building on assemblage theory, Gentrification 2.0 adopts an thoroughly interdisciplinary approach to understanding how different social, economic and spatial processes (problems and potentials) come together in shaping neighbourhoods.

A core thesis is, that despite the many critiques, gentrification remains an important strategic concept. If well elaborated and supported, the concept of gentrification can contribute to new approaches towards neighbourhood development, improving vital social, economic and spatial qualities.
