remapping _ attempt #1
Different groups of people inhabit, traverse, walk the city performing diverse rituals and producing unique signs of communication, an act of claiming a territory. Smell, noise, vision get mixed with the built landscape and memories of a space constantly in a flux. All acts that leave their traces imprinted on space. There is a question pending on how one picks up these hints to reconstruct the cityscape.
Shape _ form _ movement _ [sub] urban culture _ visual experience _ communication _ interaction create different layers either overlapping or contradicting leading to an heterogeneous collage that defines the character [the essence] of the city. Layers that are often neglected both in the process of designing for the city and our everyday interaction with space.
CASE STUDY: THE CITY OF UTRECHT
_exploration _ visual representation of the fluid [transient/unstable] aspects growing parallel to a thoroughly designed built environment often dictated by political and economical decisions.
_intervention _ on an existing urban structure an attempt to create an extra layer _ an intervention _1.to reveal _2.to activate the user [the passerby/the citizen] to reconnect with the city _ space becomes both the receiver and the transmitter of an equal participation in space.
