Tracking pedestrians’ experience of space: method and application examples
Dealing with the quality of time spent in public spaces is of central importance in town planning and urban development that is oriented towards pedestrians. It is associated with the task of tracking down systematically how pedestrians experience space in the context of concrete urban situations. However, the established methods of social science urban research are appropriate here to only a very limited extent. It is only recently that there have been methodological innovations which make it possible to record, in a differentiated manner, the experience of urban spaces by people on the move. In our lecture, we present a corresponding newer method in the form of the "commented walks", as well as various application examples.
