Welin, Carl, 2007. The Current Emphasis : en diskussion om flödesfilosofi och planering. Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



The current planning philosophy is based on a political utopic modernism founded during the first part of the 20th century. The focus is, in planning a defined area, to maximize the internal efficiency and to create a competitive
society. During the latter part of the former century globalization changed the context, thus creating the need for a new way of approaching physical planning. This paper shows that the historical and philosophical
metaphor of flow can be applied to meet the demands in the global city. It also shows how the edge, as where interaction takes place, is an important part of the content that has to be defined. Planning in the 21st century needs to become more user orientated, facilitate interaction and the meeting between strangers to generate a creative atmosphere.
