Scenario 0

The Masui district and Brabant Street were built between 1830 and 1890, following the now considered traditional model of an urban alignment and islets. There is an accumulation of poorly regulated and not always “effective” uses and practices. The public space is not neutral, it is not anyone’s space, it is a kind of extension, a temporary annex, of the semi-public spaces from different kinds of shops. Some issues stand out: The introduction of peaceful mobility in a neighbourhood where public spaces serve as delivery and logistics zones and where pedestrian and road traffic is quite chaotic. The need for a comfortable and readable public space that doesn't prevent the neighborhood shops’ activities.
