Between Everywhere, Connecting Everything, and Nowhere
Keywords:Connective space, Un-homely, Spatial design
This visual essay concerns connective spaces without status of their own, spaces that are presented as though free of values, transparent, only functional.The spaces of Montre?al’s ‘ville inte?rieure’ of the 1960s are taken to be representative. These are spaces that connect buildings, or other places, and so find themselves repositories for things and activities that cannot be placed within view anywhere else.The spaces are like those associated with infrastructure: truly un-homely spaces, produced by a combination of accident and necessity, they are closest in character to ruins, to nature, and thereby, paradoxically, free, and models for spaces to come.
