Abstract [en]

In European planning, the reaction to urban sprawl has been a trend towards concentration, which raises questions concerning the role of green space in the city. The aim of this paper is to analyse how the urban and nature are constructed in urban planning. The paper includes analysis of the comprehensive plan for Stockholm. The analysis shows that the concept of urban nature simultaneously represents something desirable and problematic. This tension is concealed in the comprehensive plan, making it function as a catalyst for change of planning direction towards increased urban density.
