Chiefly pictorial. Publisher's description: The medieval city of Braunschweig, in Germany's picturesque Hanz Mountains, received a utopian redesign during the new city movement of the 1930s. This abrupt change in the city's organization proved a starting point for photographer Bettina Lockemann's newest project. Braunschweig was transformed into a model for the hyper-systemic, democratic urban-planning philosophies of the time, with its vast housing estates and winding streets acknowledging the inevitable domination of automobile traffic. But how does the city function on those precepts today? Lockemann's photographic images reveal streets too broad, disrupting the flow of space for any use other than driving, restricting the natural interaction of foot traffic and public contact. From the Periphery is a challenging body of work that explores architectural norms and stimulates the rethinking of our urban environments.
