  • Space as a force of production : contribution to the debate on realism, capitalism and space
  • Urban design and dilemmas of space
  • Architecture ; Concept ; Modernism ; Social space ; Space ; Town ; Urban area ; Urban sociology
  • The A. aims to find an understanding of the concept of space which could be used in urban design, but which could also be shared by others with an interest in space. He argues that to arrive at a common platform in which a meaningful communication
  • can become possible, there is a need to confront the fragmentation by moving towards a more unified concept of space. He also argues for a concept of space which refers to physical space with its social and psychological dimensions.
  • Ideology ; Landscape ; Nature park ; Production of space ; Space ; Sweden
  • With the help of Lefebvre's writings on space, the A. argues that three interrelated spatialities constitute the abstract space of Swedish national parks : empty, organic, and optical space.

  • Exploring the Relationship between Design Approach and Play Value of Outdoor Play Spaces
  • East Midlands ; England ; Kit Fence Carpet playground ; Landscape ; Leisure ; Outdoor play space ; Outdoor recreation ; Recreational space ; United Kingdom ; design ; play ; play value
  • The paper reports research that explores the relationship between approaches to the design of outdoor play spaces and the play value of these spaces. It starts by explaining that there is an assumption that an outdoor space in the Kit, Fence, Carpet
  • (KFC) style provides fewer opportunities for play than spaces designed in a more natural way. To test this hypothesis an evaluation tool is developed that draws upon a range of academic literature. This tool was tested on 10 sites in the East Midlands
  • in England. The results indicate that there is a continuum between KFC and more natural spaces with a mid-category of ‘composite’ spaces.#This paper reports research that explores the relationship between approaches to the ‘design’ of outdoor play spaces

  • A discussion of terms for the description of the space-time of relief
  • Concept ; Geomorphological mapping ; Geomorphology ; Methodology ; Relief ; Space time
  • The spatial-temporal structure of relief in space and time can be described in terms based on three initial concepts: spatial organisation, hierarchical succession, and morphological succession. The indivisible space-time of relief is defined
  • by five dimensional coordinates: time, three coordinates of Euclidean space, coordinate expressing the group of characteristics, that is the level of organisation achieved. Because of the indivisible nature of space-time geomorphology needs to rediscover
  • Creating parallel public spaces through private governments : a South African case study
  • Cape Town ; Neighbourhood ; Post-apartheid ; Public space ; Security ; Segregation ; South Africa ; Town ; Urban area ; Western Cape
  • This paper argues that in central Cape Town different public spaces exist parallel to each other, continuing the long history of dysfunctional public spaces in South Africa. Privately policed public spaces are distinctly different from regular
  • , not privately governed spaces, they have become more public than they were before. Through time different public spaces developed their own cultures, norms and values. This continues, with the non-white poor congregating in regular open spaces and a white class
  • in a parallel set of open spaces.

  • Time-space approaches and regional study
  • Time-space approaches developed for the study of human spatial behavior may be extended for the study of regional spatial organization. Though the two scales are different in terms of their temporal dimension, they also share a few common aspects
  • . The time-space approach for the regional scale may be defined using the same languages as used for the human scale. The time-space approach is useful particularly for the study urban growth.
  • Between process and individuation : translating metaphors and narratives of urban space
  • The A. wants to explore more closely Lefebvre's injunction for a careful examination of the relationship between space, language and politics. He wants to examine the metaphors used by scholars theorizing urban space and everyday urban life
  • . Conceptual and political problems are associated with the adoption of various metaphors about urban space.
  • Between space and time : reflections on the geographical imagination
  • Capitalism ; Esthetics ; Geopolitics ; Historical geography ; Social change ; Social life ; Social reproduction ; Social space ; Social theory ; Space ; Time
  • This study of the historical geography of concepts of space and time suggests that the roots of the social construction of these concepts lie in the mode of production and its characteristic social relations.
  • Variations of spacings between beach cusps discussed in relation to edge wave theory
  • Variations in cusp spacings of beach cusp systems have been examined, and the conclusion is that the apparent regularity of the spacings is not always real. Established edge wave theory predicts equal cusp spacings, and accordingly, the theory needs

  • Planning ; Regional development ; Social space ; Spatial analysis
  • Space is a requisite as the air we breathe, the ground on which we stand, we walk over and through it. Human being is with space, he is part of space, he can not be absent from space. To be at all - to exist anyway - is to be somewhere
  • , and to be somewhere is toba with some kind of space. We are always surrounded by space. We live with space, relate to others with it, die with it. Within this context article deals with the problems arising from analytical approach towards the evaluation of different

  • The satisfaction of human needs in physical and virtual spaces
  • Competition ; Internet ; Social geography ; Space ; Virtual space ; e
  • This article explores the spatial dimension of Maslow's theory on the hierarchy of human needs, in light of the growing role of virtual space via the Internet in the contemporary information age.It explains that the growing role of virtual space has
  • evolved into an equivalent hierarchical relation-ship with physical space: complementarity, competition, substitution, escape, and, potentially also exclusivity. Escape from physical to virtual space, as both need and relationship, has been brought about
  • by social networking, being similar to the physical escape offered by tourism. It does not seem real to foresee that virtual space will offer exclusive fulfillment of as of yet unforeseen new human needs.
  • Phase space : geography, relational thinking, and beyond

  • Mapping the terrain of time-space compression : power networks in everyday life
  • Capitalism ; Concept ; Daily life ; Economic system ; Partnership ; Power ; Social network ; Societal relations ; Space time
  • The A. seeks a more comprehensive mapping of the experience of time-space in late modernity. Building on Massey's notion of power geometry, he integrates discussions of time-space with an application of different understandings of power
  • and their manifestations - in latent-power conditions, socioeconomic networks, actor networks, local interpersonal relations, and the network spaces of subjectivity.
  • The time of space and the space of time : the future of social science
  • Epistemology ; Ethnic group ; Geopolitics ; Ideology ; Political geography ; Social sciences ; Space time

  • of space. The A. develops the concept of the site via site ontology as an event-space that describes the differential contours and pressures of aggregating and dispersing bodies. The paper's contribution lies in considering how politics and political
  • potentials are specified by such event-spaces. The A. argues that subjectivity is often suspended where bodies encounter or get enlisted in the unanticipated connections and relations that site ontology describes.

  • Emergency shelter topologies : locating humanitarian space in mobile and material practice
  • Catastrophe ; Materiality ; Mobility ; Political geography ; Space ; Topology
  • This article focuses on the emergency family tent and the shelter kit and traces the topological associations of humanitarian spaces as enacted through humanitarian practice. The former is shown to effect humanitarian space within the associations
  • of a network topology by acting as an ‘immutable mobile’, connecting different places of humanitarian crises with each other. In contrast, the latter is shown to effect humanitarian space within the associations of a fluid topology by acting as a ‘mutable
  • mobile’,ordering space according to an overlapping and partly simultaneous timeline of action. These different ‘shelter topologies’ are shown to convey different assumptions about, and underlie different topographic renderings of, humanitarian space.

  • Ordering the city: surveillance, public space and the reform of urban policing in England 1835-56
  • England ; Historical geography ; Nineteenth Century ; Police ; Political geography ; Public order ; Public space ; Reform ; United Kingdom ; Urban area ; Urban policy
  • The A. considers the changes in the organization of policing based on the idea of surveillance. It is argued that police reform involved transformations in the deployment of policemen across space and in the definition of administrative hierarchies
  • . It also meant changes in the conception of public space. Applying this framework to the example of the Portsmouth Borough police it is demonstrated that the police force has been transformed through locally initiated reforms.

  • in the rythms of everyday life, and the socialities of sopping, are used to invest meaning in particular types of shopping space and to produce personalised shopping geographies. These arguments are developed in relation to charity shops and charity shopping.
  • Analysing space-time behaviour : new approaches to old problems
  • Behaviour ; Logit model ; Space time ; Spatial choice ; Time geography ; Utility fonction

  • A tripartite conceptualisation of urban public space as site for play : evidence from South Bank, London
  • Children ; England ; Family ; London ; Public space ; Recreational space ; Social geography ; Social practice ; United Kingdom ; Urban area
  • This article analyses a tripartite conceptualisation of urban public space as site for play through evidence from South Bank, London. It draws on ethnographic data to argue that play is a recurrent trait of sociospatial practices enacted in public
  • space. Three interrelated typologies of playful practices in public space are discussed : child's play, plays on meaning, and play as a simulation.

  • Shared space and the post-politics of environmental change
  • Accessibility ; England ; London ; Mobility ; Participation ; Public space ; Social geography ; Street ; Town planning ; United Kingdom ; Urban area ; Urban environment
  • This article analyses the shared space and the post-politics of environmental change through the example of vision-impaired people in London. It shows that their diverse needs are barely recognised or given a platform to influence shared space
  • policy. It is suggested that their marginalization is part of a postpolitical condition, in which deliberative techniques, such as public consultation, are part of a process to manage those that dissent from the preferred policy choice—i.e. shared space
  • . It concludes that an implication is the depoliticisation of shared space policy in which the unequal, and unjust, ways in which urban design impacts on vision-impaired people are neither articulated nor recognised by formal policy programmes.
