Extracting Urban Green Potential: Critical Design-Based Use of Digital and Bodily Cartography Methods

Chapter Forty-Four

[Kapitel, populärvetenskapligt]

The 2011 Swedish Research Council Formas Report on Sustainable Urban Development identifies a gap in the knowledge or understanding of the relationship between the built environment and citizens’ living conditions—the relationship that renders both elements as co-creators of the urban fabric, through their engagement and appropriation of their surroundings. This gap calls for alternatives to mainstream urban design processes, especially foodscapes, in which we must actively engage city dwellers and seek to comprehend their immediate contexts, perceptions, and ways of interacting with green spaces—in sum, a transfer and democratization of spatial agency is needed. This paper sets out explorative modes of inquiry incorporating digital and bodily cartography, tools, and platform, through active and design-based research methods as an alternate approach to greening the city—engaging the citizen as agent, and potentially transforming urban food-related lifestyles. These methodologies invite interrogation of what we eat and where our food comes from, while encouraging the emergence of an intimacy with foodscapes and a re-evaluation of seasonal rhythms.

Nyckelord: Critical cartography, Bodily engagement, Urban agriculture, Spatial agency, Urban organoleptics, Sustainable urban development.
