    Metro Doha2013In: Cities, ISSN 0264-2751, E-ISSN 1873-6084, Vol. 31, p. 533-543Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Doha, capital city of the Arab emirate of Qatar, has grown from a small, port city to a bustling capital region with global ambitions. Today almost 85% of Qatar’s total population (1.4 out of 1.7 million inhabitants) live in metropolitan Doha, while before 1971 (pre-independence) its total population was 30 times less. Blessed with generous oil and particularly gas reserves, since the 1970s the country has undertaken urban mega-projects and expensive land reclamations which have increased the built up area in the capital region by 60 times. In this article we review Doha’s past and current urban development, highlighting Qatar’s different urban phases. Also, by comparing Doha to Dubai, we investigate the impacts of Qatar’s ‘‘mega-projects agenda’’ on two important government-led developments: Education City and Mshereib Redevelopment.

    Transdisciplinary Urbanism: Three Experiences from Europe and Canada2015In: Cities, ISSN 0264-2751, E-ISSN 1873-6084, Vol. 47, p. 35-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The decreasing pace of urban development in economically-troubled Europe allows time for urban practitioners and actors to re-think planning action and its outcomes. In Canada where urban development seems unstoppable, contemplative breaks are as important. From the rubbles of recent environmental and economic crises around the world, in this article we discuss the emergence of a new theoretical approach in urban design and planning that is at the intersection of Socio-Spatial Research, Complexity Theories of Cities, and Urban Activism: Transdisciplinary Urbanism. We deploy three relevant, research projects we have been engaged with to analyze issues, challenges and limitations of Transdisciplinary Urbanism. The time frame of these interventions spans almost a decade.

    Resources and urbanization in the global periphery: Perspectives from urban and landscape studies2020In: Cities, ISSN 0264-2751, E-ISSN 1873-6084, Vol. 100, article id 102647Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the fall of 2018, a two-day seminar in Lulea, Sweden, gathered an interdisciplinary group of researchers to reflect on the socio-urban and political processes of resource extraction and urbanization in the global periphery. Cases from the Arctic region and South America were discussed from the point of view of law, history and technology, planning, and urban economics to explore the multiple conflicts arising from resource-based development in sparsely populated areas. From this perspective, we present here the cases of Kiruna, Sweden, and Calama, Chile, to highlight the need to expand urban and landscape research into the nexus between resources and urbanization.
