Inside the lines

The Schilderswijk district in The Hague brings together many people from various backgrounds and ethnicities, with each of them using public space in his or her own way. Unfortunately, these different appropriations remain implicit most of the time. Yet, with new digital media, we can make these patterns visible and use them to map the gathering points of the community. This heat map precisely offers such a visual representation – one highlighting the spatial organization of Schilderswijk’s social life.


Binnen de Lijnen is a project by LUST and LUSTlab in collaboration with The Mobile City. It is part of an ongoing research project called Public Space – Public Matter from Trancity.
