During my mapping research I became interested in space that was not build because of a purpose. During the period from which most of Ghent’s city core originated houses were built randomly where there was space, this resulted in interesting spaces in between.
I wanted to show the rarely acknowledged. During the process through twists and turns I realized that I could instead show know the commercial places. Through altering the perception through layering structures the beholder is able to see form rather than purpose. In this way the old essence of the city can be reclaimed. You see old walls and their texture again instead of H&M stores and McDonalds.
