Perm Extreme City Profiles, RU

The history of urban systems reveals that infrastructures of mobility, especially streets, always had a massive influence on the development of social structures and hereby on the development of city. Streets did not only connect important points of commercial and cultural interaction, they were also closely connected to their immediate spatial context. As being multifunctional spaces and also being interfaces between public and private - in both ways - they were not only traffic spaces. They fulfilled various functions for the adjoining surroundings. This specific mixture is known as street culture or ‘street live’. (‘Street Life’, Ali Saad, Bauwelt 6 | 2012)
Perm city knows various streets where ‘street live’ (even at -20 degrees) is still tactile, but a substantial part of Perm city profiles - and this investigation is dealing with this part - can be classified as unsubstantial voids.
Pragmatic subdivision of urban space in discrete, functional components can be blamed for this defect, the same can be applied to the size of space allocated to the car or otherwise left abandoned.
Aim of the approach is to create conditions for social interaction and to intensify the relationship public-private. The public space concept of the PSM forms the basis for this strategy.
