Process Cartography II 

Walking a Section through the City 
Walking is one way of engaging with city space. As we transect the city on foot, we internalise the relative positions of our spatial surroundings in relation to our own body and pace, and add measures of distance and personal experiences to our idea of the world. When representing the city accordingly, from a walker's perspective, our spatial awareness is potentially intensified. It requires us to consider the specific qualities of the spaces we encounter and our subjective responses to them, spanning from our cultural associations with a particular spatial typology to, for example, our feeling for an expanse of horizon. This semester explores how, alongside city maps and models, plans, sections and analysis documents, the perspective of the walker might better inform our decision-making when we set about design on a city scale.

The students' of our semester will walk and represent by means of 'A Series of Spatial Events' one of two transects across Zurich, bisecting the relatively large former common land of Allmend Brunau in Zürich. The Allmend Brunau will then become the focus of a subjective spatial programme. Rather than attempting a comprehensive dealing with the whole territory, students will simulate a walk through the imagined new territory. By means of a series of 'stage-sets' they will deal in detail with spatial qualities such as scale, sequence, view and perspective, materiality and atmosphere.. Simultaneously this detailed spatial handling will inform a general strategy for the reorganisation of the Allmend Brunau.
