Tools and Methods Applied

The methods used are carried out as three interconnected steps. First, we conducted a document and media analysis of the historical process to reveal the heritage values of what is preserved today. Second, we carried out a street-intercept survey, conducted with people we met in the case study area. We asked about their opinion about the urban environment and the cultural heritage of the site, their reaction to the aftermath of urban transformation, and how they perceive and interpret the ruins of this specific fragmented heritage today. The respondents were passers-by encountered in Calmeyers gate, and visitors at the Latin-American restaurant ‘Tukthuset Mat & Drikke’ and the cultural café/bar ‘Kulturhuset’. The data were completed with surveys with the staff from the cultural café/bar ‘Kulturhuset’ and the police station, and two additional short face-to-face individual interviews. Finally, we also carried out on-site observations prior to and throughout the interview process in order to explore the area and vicinities, and for observing people’s comportment around the ruins. The purpose of the questionnaire is to investigate people’s own perceptions and interpretations of the site and of the management of Tukthus’ ruins over time.

66 individuals were approached in the street-intercept survey. A total of 44 individuals (23 women and 21 men) responded to the survey. 41 questionnaires were completed, and 2 short interviews were conducted. 35 questionnaires were completed on site (16 at the restaurant, 19 at the cultural café/bar) and 6 more were mailed back (in a pre-stamped envelope). Among the 44 respondents, two individuals responded as a couple (1 questionnaire).
