Borders, the architecture of street
The design of the void has become increasingly important in contemporary design practice. The highly topical issue is the difficult identification between open space, the void, and public space. Difficulty in providing a new meaning, and therefore a new form, for the undecided spaces that the processes of contemporary urban life produce as waste, as residual space. Working on the void, in an attempt to define its form and meaning, does not mean working on the surface of things. At least not only. Recognising the empty space of our cities as a sensitive issue, a widespread network of areas awaiting design, is one of the main challenges that the discipline of architecture must face with its own tools, avoiding easy solutions of furnishing, equipment and embellishment of space.
