Space of Potential

A Space of Potential is an undefined fragment of the urban fabric without obvious permanent function. By defining these spaces, we want to activate and use public space on a human, temporary scale. We feel like trespassers in our own city. We don’t know what is allowed, so we stay safe. 

In The Hague, the Algemene Plaatselijke Verordening regulates public order, nature and the appearance of the municipality. We are exploring and exploiting the limits and possibilities of these regulations as starting point for interventions in public space. Thus we discover the unused potential of our city for self-expression, community-building and ever-changing situations.
