Description

The A40 motorway represents the long, unknown ‘spine’ of the Ruhr area with onemillion people living alongside it. Allotment gardeners, shopping malls, and cultural events all use this Great Road as a link with public gathering points and road junctions. Three cities of the Ruhr area have merged into one vast urban conurbation and the A40 has evolved from a problem-ridden trafficway to possibly the most unusual ‘boulevard’ of the Ruhr metropolis. The questions explored in this book are how are urban spaces generated other than through purposeful planning and functional zoning? What sort of spaces evolve almost imperceptiblyand in what way? How does the lack of political interest in the subject affect the design of ‘selfregulated’ public urban spaces?
