The role of urban open space is multi-faceted. Looking at residential open space you will find that it has specific qualities compared to other types of urban space due to the proximity to home. This paper discusses residential open space as arena for integration, taking this topological property as a starting point. The paper is based on an ongoing study in the Swedish city Landskrona. The study is one of four forming the research project “Public urban spaces – potential for socially sustainable development”, which is linked to the cross-disciplinary research programme “Urban public space”, funded by the Swedish research council FORMAS. The investigation discussed in this paper is performed as a case-study of a pilot project in a municipally initiated housing revitalization project in the Swedish city of Landskrona. The potentialities of open space as a strategic resource have been recognized by the main house owners, the municipal housing corporation. The study maps the main strategies and tries to understand the role of residential open space for processes of integration. (Less)
