Public space . A tool against inequalities


Why public spaces could be a revolutionary tool in nowadays cities.

Public space . A tool against inequalities


Why public spaces could be a revolutionary tool in nowadays cities.
Towards a new urbanism. Small diffuse interventions to increase people quality of life.

Type of project
  • Practical problems

Our image shows one of the playgrounds designed by the Architect Aldo Van Eyck in Amsterdam after the II World War. A bombed lot, got a new life through a public space project.
People are walking through it, kids are playing and meeting and the neighborhood got a new space for living as a community. We chose it because the idea we'd like propose is about a new way of considering urbanism.
Today isn't anymore the time for general top-down plans.
Today Architecture needs to focus on how increasing the quality of life of people living in the suburbs areas of our cities. As Van Eyck did with its playground in a post-war situation, we need now to encourage a new urbanism method, where a constellation of precise little interventions could care about the isolated, tense and problematic condition of many of our cities. Our idea could maybe seems too generic but we're conviced that Public Spaces and a new awareness of it could be the strongest tool to intervene in many urban problems.
