Alienation Bypass - A Social Practice To Develop Space: The Case Of Setif'S Harat
AbstractInhabitants have the capacity to divert spaces and to get round rules of urbanism without transgressing laws (we qualify this action as an "alienation bypass"). While acting on spaces such as Setif's harat, inhabitants invent harat souika (or dwelling souika). This research work shows inhabitants' skills in term of space's arrangements. The harat souika created by them remains a fine example. It is a type of mixed use building : a harat (compact housing unit) and a souika (permanent small souk or market). An innovation territory at a domestic scale that combines residences with stores and workplaces. It limits the residential scattering, avoids the urban sprawl and remains a compact housing very useful to the city.
