about

 

The research takes as a case study the city of Beirut, addressing the multiple subjective representations of the city and of its public space, questioning how these imaginaries translate into different forms of urban and social practice, and shedding light on the roles and limits of informal mobility in shaping the relationship to the territory. The underlying question behind these investigations is whether and how mobility can (re-) generate public space in the context of a fragmented urbanity.
