Yona Friedman | Ville Spatiale in Binckhorst

Based on a post on Yona Friedman’s proposal for the Binckhorst, an industrial area in The Hague, we just want to share a thought that we think is quite inspiring:
In the late fifties and in the sixties I was regarded by some people as a utopian. But I see myself as a realist. In all of my work I have been trying to demonstrate that everything people experience as utopian can actually be realized. So I see my role as that of someone who passes on ideas to reflect on. To make people think. And when I succeed I’m very happy!
