The Interstitial Spaces of Urban Sprawl. Geographies of Santiago de Chile’s Zwischenstadt

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book proposes the idea of interstitial space as a theoretical framework to describe and understand the implications of in-between lands in urban studies, and their profound transformative effects in cities and their urban character.

The analysis of the interstitial spaces is structured in four themes; the conceptual grounds of interstitial spaces; the nature of interstices; the geographical scale of interstices; and the relationality of interstices. The empirical section of the book introduces seven cases that illustrate the varied nature of interstitiality to finally discuss its implications in the broader field of urban studies. Reflections upon further lines of enquiry and theories of urbanisation, urban sprawl, and cities are highlighted in the conclusion chapter.

This is the ideal text for scholars of urban planning, strategic spatial planning, landscape planning, urban design, architecture, and other cognate disciplines as well as advanced students in these fields.
