The chapter develops landscape and dwelling perspectives used by anthropologists and geographers, combining these with understandings of "spectacle" from critical urban studies, to analyse and account for the polarisation of urban development into the very small scale and the very large, to wit, DIY/grassroots on the one hand and big, fast-paced, capital-intensive construction on the other. Helsinki is used as illustrative case study.
