UGSteam8_be second presentation_what if …

Groundwork of our second presentation was to setting up a selection of questions, so called micro-scenarios – what would be happen if…? It was sort of compilation of task by ourselves. From those (about 10 different scenarios) we picked out a quite extreme one: „what would be happen, if Wenduine becomes isolated?“ Based on four main categories – housing, garden, transportation and characteristics of the area – we proposed several solutions and ideas. Altough many of those ideas were dealing with sharing aspects and enhanced interaction between neighbors, the most intriguing was the idea of connecting two or more existing households into one whole (sort of co-housing). That means, we link them with a structure that they are going to share. This kind of solution creates a new level of communication between neighbors. It’s not easy to change the status of traditional home model. People like privacy and they are not always up to change the status quo. But thinking about possible changes in the future – economical, social and class segregation aspects – that kind of transformation of classical home might be one possible way to keep suburban environment alive and sustainable.
