Aachen II

Plots and typologies of housing quarters

Research Project



The project started in 2015. It focusses on urban plots and the consequences of the spatial formations between housing and plots. While traveling through the city of Aachen, looking for housing quarters and their specific typology it became obvious that the post-war development changed the relation between plots and housing. This is part of the problem of the urban structure of the city. The different measures and the proportions of each plot influence the spatial formation of each quarter. The post-war development forced the separation of housing and plot. The border that each plot creates is an invisible line that asks for architectonical answers. The ongoing research led into my PhD Thesis about the influence of the land issue on urban planning theories.
