Abstract

Like many European regions, the Alpine Rhine Valley, at the intersection of Switzerland, Austria, and Liechtenstein, is characterised by a heterogeneous mix of settlement areas, transport infrastructure, settlement-related open spaces, agricultural areas, and open landscape structures. Planning science tries to describe this phenomenon of urbanization through different terms: agglomeration, urban landscape, urban area, in-between city, sprawl town, etc. The research parameter is an unremarkable but publicly accessible “inbetween” space within the urban landscape of Liechtenstein. The underlying hypothesis of this paper is that there is little aesthetic attention given to these in-between spaces in science, planning policy, and practice in the case of Liechtenstein. The research project investigates the question of how the perception-oriented perspective of everyday landscapes can be implemented into the institutionalised processes of conceptual landscapes on two levels: (1) Everyday landscapes: in-between spaces are examined from the perspective of perception in the case of Vaduz, Liechtenstein. (2) Conceptual landscapes: in-between spaces are viewed from the rational perspective of planning, systematisation, and control. In this paper, we specifically examine the potentials and challenges of Urban Living Labs (ULL) as an applied and participatory research method to integrate the perspectives of the everyday and conceptual landscapes through temporary revitalisation and activation of the “Parkhaus Marktplatz” in Vaduz. Hence, the focus is not on the impact on the built environment but rather on the learnings of this participatory process for future planning on three perspectives: (i) actors, (ii) process, and (iii) programme.
