The Double Space of Architecture: Methodological Reflections on the Study of Lived Environments

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

People engage with space in a variety of meaningful ways and at all scales: from the immediate space that surrounds the body, to architectural and urban space, to landscape. Designed space reaches its completion only when it is appropriated by people through this very engagement. The lecture will focus on a sociological perspective on this complex relationship, proposing a set of theoretical and empirical tools for the investigation of the social production of space.
