For an Urban Interiority

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Contrary to the traditional definition of interiors, this paper investigates the notion of urban interiority, intended as an expanded corpus of design operations and theoretical perspectives. Urban interiority constitutes a holistic approach to architecture, as it tends to overcome rigid categorizations. Most importantly, the idea of urban interiority invites us to rethink the relation between object and subject, or between human and non-human agents. Four main points help define the role that a project of urban interiority can play in the contemporary architectural production, as well as in the disciplinary debate: (meta)scale, the shift from objects to fields, the dialogue between intensive and extensive properties, and the notion of assemblage.
