First urban intervention in our backyard

This sunday afternoon was perfect to start our private-space-project, so we took our chalk and drew these footprints. They should question the separated yard in useless units without any use than for parking. Our dream is a united backyard as a common good for all residents, with green space, place for gardening and a playground for children.

We also presented the spatial balance:

140m² for 14 cars, 10m² for 10 bycicles.

The objective of this balance was to show the inequality of spatial use by different means of transport and to call attention to the lack of space for bycicles in our backyard.

Result: three complaints
