For this research we wanted to look at the influence of the environment on people and the influence of people on the environment. For an other research I read about gentrification. In these texts I found it very interesting to see how much influence people have on their environment. For example in Prenz Lauerberg, Berlin. Urban planners tried to make the neighborhood a better place, without banishing the residents. But there are coming new people. Residents feel alienated, because of the coming of those new people. Read for example the text of Kate Shaw. It makes you also think about what can we plan in a city and what is just happening.

Shaw, Kate, ‘The place of alternative culture and the politics of its protection in Berlin, Amsterdam and Melbourne’, Planning theory and practice 16 (2005) nr. 2, pp. 149-169.
