dc.description.abstractWith cities becoming denser and a global goal of limiting the emission of greenhouse gasses, an urgent need to rethink urban mobility and the space use of parked cars exists. In the USA, the transformation of parking space into other forms of public space grew popular in the last decade. It is however yet unclear how this concept would work out in countries with a different attitude- and planning system. In this thesis, the perception of people in the neighborhood Nijmegen-Oost - a predominantly pre-war residential area in the city of Nijmegen in the Netherlands - concerning the transformation of parking space into other forms of public space is researched and accounted for. The research questions are answered with the help of a short literature review and three empirical theories as a framework. The main data input comes from a survey (N = 934) which has been distributed in all streets of the research area, in which different influential factors on the perception are tested, along with other relevant information. More data is derived from focus group discussions, which function as a qualitative elaboration of the quantitative survey data.en_US
