Cultural Approach to Urban Regeneration in the West: Cases in London and Sydney

Chen Jie

Keywords: Urban Regeneration; Cultural Approach; Progressive Strategy; Creative Strategy; Entrepreneurial Strategy; The West; London; Sydney


Cultural approach has been gradually applied to urban regeneration practices. Western scholars identified the progressive, creative and entrepreneurial cultural strategies in urban regeneration, and summarized four aspects of characteristics. Through a review of western literatures, this paper expands the characteristics of cultural strategies into seven aspects, namely, architectural type, potential value, goals, main stakeholders, target audience, type of cultural programs and facilities, and cultural activities. Focusing on cases in London and Sydney, the author summarizes the main characteristics of three cultural development strategies, in attempting to enrich existing literature and provide a reference to the urban regeneration practices in China.
