Here are some photos of our hallway-livingroom intervention. It represents my idea of a new urbanism.

Contemporary cities, though shaped by humans, are devoid of humanity. They are overly structured and lack individual engagement. They are built to maximize efficiency, not to inspire and allow for creativity.

In my ideal notion of a new urbanism, spaces like this hallway would be open to creative reframing, like we have done here. As a result the sensory feed back we would get moving through the city would not be from advertising, but from individual creative input.
