The greater cities’ outer transitional zones are ephemeral and dynamic. With Malmö (Sweden) as an example this paper discusses how coastal and agricultural landscapes in the urban fringe can develop into something new and closer to actual needs of the inhabitants. This is done by opening up for a use of new concepts when describing these areas, for example among planners/designers and exploiters. The approach is interdisciplinary, involving cultural geography and landscape architecture, and aims at weaving history, the present and the future together to open up for a more dynamic and inter-related understanding and practice for cultural heritage, planning and urban design.
