Private matters

Hello dear reader, 
This is likely to become a series, since I have come along various private matters recently. 
October has been golden and the  city never ceases to surprise me. 
This housing project caught my eye. It is located in the far East of the city where the City of Vienna ends and Lower Austria begins.   
The project has been built 1997-1999. 
A boulevard cuts through the neighbourhood. The front doors are decorated.
Some of the building lots were originally equipped with concrete walls high enough to provide privacy.

concrete walls provide privacy

Architects hope for lively neighbourhoods when they leave out the concrete walls. They do communicatie, not quite they way intended ...

The metal fence depicts where the original intention (waist-high) fell short of reality.

I like the way the residents communicate from a design point of view.



The main reason for all the fencing is the need for privacy. But the fences also show the need for originality. More or less.


 In 2021 the look across the road offers vastness, fields. The future will tell ...

Speaking of vast fields: these fields are meant to last. Which was by no means sure at all 8 years ago! 


I like to dedicate this posting to Christine

Christine is a blogger who lives in London. Her blog is interesting, precious and enjoyable. We share our love for the small things in life. I want to gice something back in return, starting with today's posting. :-)

Have a cozy weekend!
