Crushed / Cosy corner

The urban furniture on the pedestrian area between the housing blocks situated between the Wasserijstraat, Rue des Tanneurs and Nieuwland are well known for its swift deterioration. Youth like to make noise, piles of trash arrise overnight, cars crash poles and fences. A typical accident that happens regularly is that the corners of the wall on the pictures, separating stairs and parking spaces, are tipped over by cars that pull backwards out of the parking lot.

Action is taken: an organic reconstruct using some cement and bricks and vernecular design skills gives new life to this otherwise useless and desolate spot. I partiularly like the yellow brick seating that is put on top of the wall to replace the grey stone slate that has gone lost. (Zoom in on picture above for maximum visibilty)
