Life Nerve

How to connect residential areas with both infrastructure and activity fields, while in the same time allowing a flexible design to meet different (and changing) demands?


A Life Nerve made of a bike-and-walking path and a series of activity fields could connect the urban districts, supporting the wish of the residents for living in a coherent urban area made of different residential districts.


If hard patterns met infrastructural demands and soft patterns enabled interest groups to transform their living environment according to changing needs, the Urban Plan could become a PARTICIPATORY PLAN.
