Conference Paper / Full Text
Due to the pressure of the neo-capitalist system, the creative destruction approach has been commonly applied rather than the methods which would regard to the memory of the place. Instead of the spatial and even demographical gentrifications especially have been encountered at the post-industrial territories. Hybridized space creation strategies can be set up to obtain the organized composition of the associated spaces. From this perspective, heterotopological third places would handle the construction of the collective life fragments and the democratic economic cycles with convenient cases.
Paper Island is temporarily hosting the Copenhagen Street Food Hall until the construction of the redevelopment proposal will be started. Thanks to the complicated situation of Paper Island, a holistic approach (current and near-future scope) can be possible through the comparison opportunity with the conceptual explanation set of the heterotopological third places. In the subtitle of focusing on the current conditions, Copenhagen Street Food will be discovered through the guidance of the conceptual and physical elements. Providing egalitarian conditions for the tenants, determining the sustainable regulations to encourage the autonomous cycle and generating the inviting atmosphere to house visitors from the diverse spectrum should be stated as the fundamentals of the system. As a part of the hybridized production process, material and even structural references from the former industrial background, transferred components of the street life as a physical appearance or an inserted logic also should be crucial to mention within the stages of the space creation.
In the final section, near-future projections about the field of Paper Island will be examined to clarify the big picture about the urban development policies of Copenhagen. Similar another cases from various metropolises also can be revealed via keeping the basis criteria within the analysis process of the article thanks to identical actions of the global architectural policies.
