free of charge



The gray zone of urban planning is all informal, dangerous,
forbidden, not obvious, ambiguous, unwanted, unfinished,
unattractive, unprofitable, impractical, unsustainable,
irrational, unprofessional, unpromising and disliked processes and
phenomena that make up urban space – in various contexts, like urban planning,

This includes things like allotment gardens, graffiti,
skateboarding, vacant buildings, abandoned and temporary spots, places
of informal meetings, spaces and things from the previous era, e.g. bars
or unprofitable services, things made by hand, urban wildlife.

which create informal places, spectacular for the atmosphere of the city.

Outskirts are sketches, drawings, things and ideas more or less related
to this theme.


Traffic Design is the organizer of the exhibition.
