5.2.1 Basic concepts of neighbourhood and public space design

Course subject(s) 5. The Neighbourhood

Watch urban designers MaartenJan Hoekstra and Maurice Harteveld introducing the interrelationships between urban design and inequality on the scale level of the neighborhood and its public spaces. They reflect on positive and negative effects of design interventions and the concept of hyper-diversity, using several case studies in Rotterdam:

    • Connecting, mixing and public spaces at Kop van Zuid
    • Designing shared public space at Afrikaander Square
    • Designing an inclusive neighborhood at ZoHo Quarter

Designing a wide variety of public spaces bringing together different people and designing for all people proves to be challenging.
