Motto: Flow is both Inspiration – and Movement in Space/Time
2. FLOW AND THE 500x500M URBAN WALK
An Urban Planning Methodology
The work focuses on the kernel in Architecture and the Art of City Planning by creating a Flow of Movements through spaces of high quality. Flow in this work is both Inspiration, and Movement in Space/Time. A planning method is developed by comparing – in the same scale-, a 500×500 m movement in great cities, and then implementing the results in Gdansk. For us the kernel of Architecture is flow through spaces of high quality. In order to test this kernel visually in the Art of City Planning we tested an urban 500 x 500m walk that we know well in Helsinki. Next we compared Helsinki – IN THE SAME SCALE – to some great cities, loved by poets and architects. Finally we applied the same method to the work in Gdansk.
This is the secret of the kernel.

Part two is so interesting that I have read it 4-5 times. I like the parts from Helsinki, Stockholm
compared to Krakow and Gdansk. And the tiny Visby… What a intersesting method you found.
But can you tell us, what did you learn yourself?
How is the street in prague on the picture called? thanks a lot!
It could be the Tynska street or the Melantricova in Prague.
