Hybrid Tourism-Related Structures: Revisiting The Westin Bonaventure Hotel

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review


This article is rooted in theories presented in the PhD dissertation Tourism and Strategic Planning (Pasgaard 2012) and features a number of much discussed concepts related to the complicated phenomenon of tourism and to the discipline of strategic urban planning. It is beyond the scope of this article to enter a detailed discussion of all mentioned concepts; however, it is important to set the stage by providing a few compressed notes on the overall approach to the
phenomenon of tourism. Corresponding to the fluid transition between chores of everyday life and tourism behavior, the tourist space is not an unequivocal spatial specification. Rather, tourist space is a temporary condition, which depends on tourism activity and the mode of the observer.
It is essential to understand and accept the liquidity of the tourism phenomenon and remember that tourism behavior and tourist space are relative concepts (Pasgaard 2012).
The underlining premise for the following analysis is that interference between tourism-related and everyday-related flows and activities, generally speaking, is a positive and desirable urban quality.
