Brown Bag: Other typologies of public urban space

Public urban space research has moved from concentrating on clearly demarcated urban spaces in dense urban settings to include more wide-reaching spatial networks of larger urban territories where spaces of amorphous shapes ripe with everyday practices are found. The presentation seeks to advance this attention to other typologies of public urban space. It draws on two on-going research studies and brings together theory and on-site empirics in seeking to qualify an understanding of such other typologies. It challenges the terminology of ‘public urban space’ in dealing with geographies beyond that which may be traditionally understood as the urban, and by exploring what spaces actually work as vital spatial arenas for everyday life.
