Rehabilitating Utopias: the Importance of Imagination to Confronting our Spatial Challenges

Rehabilitating Utopias: the Importance of Imagination to Confronting our Spatial Challenges

Samenvatting

Many contend that end-state planning is no longer either acceptable or feasible. However, outside the formal planning system, communities do conceive radical proposals for the places they live in. Our paper makes a plea for a renewed appreciation of Utopias by revealing the diversity of such imagined futures of a place. By means of a review of the nature of 12 locally emerging Utopias in the Netherlands, combined with a literature review, we propose to use spectra to characterise imagined futures, bringing nuance to the debate and a re-appreciation of the transformative power of Utopian stories about futures of places.
