Aachen I

The urban plot and its space

Research Project


The research project on urban plots started in 2015. It is focussed on urban plots and their spatial outcome. The periphery of the city of Aachen is the context in which the spatial phenomenon between housing, plots can be described. How is the plot, as it is describing a border, architectonically defined? How is the correlation between plot and building, creating different spatial outputs in the periphery? As the geometry of a plot is originally defined by agricultural needs, what influence does it have in nowadays on the image of the outskirts?
