Housing and Proximity: a bike trip

Last week, as part of our "Designing Proximity: Urban Context" Learning Activity, we decided to cross the study area by bike. We started in the city of Leuven from where we cycled through the Linden suburbia, trying to map different scenarios of proximity. The tour illustrated the importance of Belgian or Flemish fiscal and social politics, favoring a wide-spread low dense landscape, based on individual home ownership.
