Increasing degrees of urbanization, increased transport and densification as a planning strategy are phenomena that leads to a demand for new knowledge on how people experience their everyday surroundings. It is through the daily experiences of their surroundings that people have most of their encounters with natural and cultural landscapes. This report describes a pilot study in which a theoretical basis for the study of the everyday landscape in cities and urban areas is developed. Central concepts to the understanding of man environment interaction are explored, and appropriate methods for the study of the topic are described and evaluated.
