Residential Area 5616 Eindhoven
Residential area: A lot of car workshops but no basic services. A lot of open green but no public space. The conformist prison of privileged middle class nuclear family.
There are neither private nor public spaces without an urbanism strategy; it is design as a package. As citizens and consumers of private houses, we are all responsible of the whole structure and its consequences. Public space versus packaging.
The research is based on the analysis of the origin of contemporary residential areas (City Garden Plan) and the mechanisms that turn a public space into a social space.
Public spaces, not a derivative of movement, not just open green areas, but an extension of our private life.
From the back garden to the front garden. Extension of the Private Space = Extension of the Public Space.
