Our 2010 challenge, “Potgieterstraat” has been included within the ebook “Streets For All – 50 Concepts for Shaping Resilient Cities” (2022). The ebook explores the potential of public areas seen by way of the lens of various disciplines. It questions the notion of who shapes our streets, for whom they’re supposed, by what means and to what ends.
Regardless of its small measurement, Carve’s challenge “Potgieterstraat” stays related right now as a unprecedented instance of the way to remodel a vehicle-dominated road into a toddler pleasant play road.
Our strategy, specializing in group involvement by way of a technique of participation, resulted within the creation of a extra accessible public house; and ultimately, within the affirmation of a local people.
We’re proud to see how students and professionals world wide proceed to acknowledge Potgieterstraat as a precious and vigorous piece of the city panorama.
