The Pavement Discussion by Marian de Vries and guests

19:00 - 20:30

Lecture series Who Owns The Street?

Eric van Ulden and Sander van der Ham et al. wrote the book “The pavement, encounters between the house and the street”, (Nai publishers 2015). The pavement is a transitional area between the house and the street, where there is social contact between the residents, and the atmosphere of the street is determined to a large extent. In their publication Van Ulden and Van der Ham show how the pavement provides opportunities for a “healthy” city. Marian de Vries, who worked as a town planner for Buro Lubbers, reflects on the suggestions and presents a number of current projects for public space. Amongst other things Buro Lubbers designed the square in front of the Lichttoren in Eindhoven, and was responsible for the town planning for Strijp R. (In Dutch)

Series of lectures and debates

This discussion evening is part of a nine-part series of lectures and debates related to the exhibition Who Owns The Street? This exhibition shows different ways of seeing the street – our public space. Who uses this public space? Who manages, controls and abuses it? Who is the owner and what responsibilities does this ownership entail? The series of lectures and debates takes place in the museum on Thursday evenings, and is organised in cooperation with Architectuurcentrum Eindhoven.
