bring Bateson back

The first in a series of articles by Gisle appeared in today's Nordlys - Byer i endring (Changing cities) about urbanisation, with examples from our investigations in Malmö: new housing on old landfills as in Västra Hamnen, risks of gentrification in Möllevången, stigmatized Rosengård and the ressources and possibilities bound in the infrastructure areas and peri-urban landscapes - wrapping it all up with the words of Gregory Bateson: We are not outside the ecology for which we plan - we are always and inevitably a part of it.
