The Generic City.
Nowadays modern citys are being seized by a gigantic transformation process. Modernization pushes us further and further into the future. The familiar flemish villages make way for a new kind of urbanism.
A city withouth identity and history: The Generic City.
The generic city is plain and rational. Each part is an embodiment of the whole : A configuration of roads, building blocks and nature. There is a trance in the generic city, an eerie silence. I searched for signs of this generic city and how its properties are already penetrating the flemish landscape.
