Territorial Complexity in Public Spaces - A Study of Territorial Production at Three Squares in Lund

Kärrholm, Mattias LU (2005) In Nordisk arkitekturforskning 18(1). p.99-114
Abstract
The object of this paper is to develop a discussion of territoriality in the built environment as a way of dealing with issues of accessibility and the public nature of urban space. A discussion of territoriality makes it possible to deal with issues of spatial control and access in detail, as well as to maintain some of the complexity in the discussion by refraining from solely analysing these issues within the frame of one given dichotomy such as the public/private distinction. My discussion takes the form of an empirical study of territorial production at three squares in Lund, Sweden. I focus on the relationship between materiality and territoriality, and how different material actants (Latour 1998) support territorial production.... (More)

Finally, I present a model regarding public space as the product of territorial complexity. (Less)
