The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory
The urban structure of the post-war garden neighborhoods doesn’t function in the same way as the inner city. Its closed building blocks, clearly defined streets, squares and shopping areas. The marginal shopping squares and strips provide space for improvisation. The little businesses are scattered in a hidden way inside the neighborhoods. The rent for the space is cheap and the costumers – mainly residents of the neighborhoods - know their way around in this closed circuit of suppliers and clients. Local economies, small businesses and shops, flourish. Immigrant communities are setting up their own small businesses, thus enhancing the level of facilities and communal growth.
