More Info


The research explains the situation of the bad living conditions to which city planners, politicians and tycoons reacted. Both the healing environment (Wesfort) and the healthy environment (Company Towns and Garden Cities) have in common that the intention is to enhance the quality of life in order to increase productivity and community feeling. The health environment tries to find a balance between life in the city and life in the countryside. This balance allows citizens to live in an environment that in not threatened by industrial progress. The paradox is that the industry is not abandoned but used as a tool, becoming part of the daily life of people. The escape to the countryside therefore is enhanced by allowing productivity to take place. Past reconciles with the present, city and countryside merge.
