City formation & urban everyday life consumption are formed by each other. This book explored these relationships from two angles by using various commofities and places as methofological examples. First, different commodities, consumption projects and associated spaces are explored. This involves shopping for clothes in fashion retail shops, browsing for books in bookstores as well as drinking coffee at cafes. Second, spatial practices of producers and users of consumer service spaces in the context of property development, urban politics and everyday life in Stockholm city centre are analysed.
