Abstract
There seems to be a tendency in urban development towards enhancing the attractiveness of city spaces. The common critique of this tendency is that it increases the uniformity of city spaces that are meant to be attractive. This negative evaluation of uniform cities has inspired interventions that aim to increase differences between city centres. However, these interventions in the urban environment also tend to increase uniformity, because they have to meet the expectations of the public. This research project aims to generate insight in the development of city spaces towards diversity or uniformity, the powers of such urban spaces and the role of inner city redevelopment projects in this development, in order to enable stakeholders to measure the consequences of such interventions in the urban environment.
