Working on this urban project for a 40 ha plot in Grüngürtel neighborhood in Düren, Germany, we analyzed diverse possible scenarios for the town development and decided to create a neighborhood that is specifically structured for easier integration of visually impaired people, as there are a high percentage of blind people in the town as well as older gene- rations, that often have problem with vision.
We focused on different ways to make the space easier to perceive and navigate as well as create the possibilities to integrate visually impaired people in the community by creating jobs opportunities and carless community spaces.
The work was done in a group of 5 with me as a leader. Other group members: Nada Ben Amor, Sumin Kim, Alisa Aleksandrova, Marlon Brownsword.
