Strategy of Small Interventions
Public space is a limited resource in cities and is shaped by the negotiation processes of different players. The most successful player in cities is usually the car, which manages to turn public space into a street space. This becomes particularly clear on the example of the play street – much street and less play.
As part of the IBA School 2017, the student group of the University of Stuttgart explored traffic and play spaces, developed interventions in dialogue, played at found places, explored possibilities and documented the experienced negotiation processes. Through interventions on site and in dialogue with the public, the perception of the potential of public space has been sharpened and additional possibilities of use identified. The strategies of small interventions such as sidewalk barbecues, football games on the street, and talks on parking lots can have a big impact on our future cities and can be considered as a starting point to see our surroundings in a completely new way.
