Abstract

The formal deconstruction of the contemporary metropolis is a direct conseguence of the processes of social and economic transformations currently underway. Its spaces and places are continually subjected to new programs of use, often through processes of spontaneous re-functionalisation. The post-industrial development has led to the genesis of 'undecided, no function related' spaces, which can be called other spaces. These different spaces are a land of refuge for diversity and scenes of solid dynamics. The paced Age of Access provides a transition from an economy largely dominated by the market and the concepts of goods and propriety to an economy dominated by intangible values such as culture, information and, mainly, relational aspect activator of new qualities within the territory. The Final design studio, in collaboration with the University of Brighton (UK), Master in Interior Design, worked on six selected in-between urban spaces in the city of London, located east nearby the Olympic site, in a peculiar area in which thresholds and borderlines divide/connect extremely dfferent realities.
