The Generic City.


personal work


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.
