DESIGN URBANISM, basic principle

The Urbanism Design finds its base within the area located on the back of the old Haarlemmermeerstation. This once was the train station connection Amsterdam to Haarlem and Leiden. In its periphery there is a piece of the city that we could describe as a splinter of the urban fabric. The image of empty garages and temporary small buildings is confronted with immense buildings like a tram garage and a prison. Within the smaller structure there is not only small businesses but also artists find their home. Despite its vivid use it is still a no go area. To change this it is important not only to esthetically change its appearance but also introduce more evening used facilities and public buildings.
Down here a foto of the area.
