This section of the seminar will focus on the relationship between designed space and lived space starting from the assumption that commodities, like persons, have social lives (Appadurai 1986). Empirical evidence shows that designed space often conflicts with the way its users project their values, their cultures and more generally their lives, into space. Although there is no general theory on the relationship between designed space and lived space, there are some general readings which work as an introduction to the topic and/or as a methodological framework. The issue will be then developed through a certain number of cases at different scales which will be also used to discuss and compare different methodological approaches.
