Home territories and the atmosphere of spectacle: the experience of residents living in and around Montreal's Quartier des spectacles - A phenomenological inquiry

Abstract : As cities are investing in urban (re)development projects, local residents are affected by the changes directly. It is difficult, however, to qualify these experiences. The objective of this paper is to explore the importance of a study that considers the potential impact on residents living in and around a (re)developed cultural district that has a distinct and identifiable atmosphere of spectacle. We propose a phenomenological inquiry to explore the case of a recent urban (re)development project, Montreal's Quartier des spectacles, with regard to the impact of the spectacularization of space on residents' home territories.
