This booklet is made for the FORMAT 2019 exhibtion ‘Changing Attitudes’ in Z33, Hasselt. As a critique on the current urban trend to overprogram and overdesign Belgium cities, and Western cities in general, a research is done into five cases of abandoned and un-programmed spaces of Brussels. Through fieldwork, photography and literary references the question is posed: How are these spaces used and what social-spatial and ecological value do they have to our cities?


Printed and distributed with the supported of FORMAT 2019, Z33 Hasselt and part of the exhibition 'Forms of Public Privacy’.
