  • 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.
  • Space and sustainability : an exploratory essay on the production of social spaces through city-work
  • Globalization ; Labour ; Social geography ; Social space ; Sustainable development ; Territoriality ; Town
  • Place, space and environment in America's leisure landscapes
  • A commentary on leisure as a use of space and as a reflection of American culture. - (DWG)
  • Space, politics and desire : configuring the landscape in post-revolutionary France
  • Citizenship ; Cognitive space ; Cultural landscape ; Eighteenth Century ; France ; Historical geography ; Nineteenth Century ; Perception ; Policy ; Space
  • The French Revolution reconfigured citizen's views of real and imagined space. This process of reconfiguration and the relationship between politics and space are explored between 1789 and 1815. The spaces of the Revolution were characterized
  • by a diversity in which each political constituency made a space of its own choosing.
  • Optimizing the spacing of feeder road systems
  • 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
  • and the play value of these spaces. The paper 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
  • Midlands in England. The results indicate that there is a continuum between KFC and more natural spaces with a mid-category of ‘composite’ spaces. Play value increases along this continuum between the two styles while characteristics such as the amount

  • 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
  • On the contours of public space : a tale of three women
  • Activity space ; Gender ; New York City ; Private space ; Public space ; Regulation ; United States of America ; Urban area ; Urban practice ; Woman
  • The AA. suggest that there are significant but neglected connections between the regulation of public space to which S. Hall was subjected at New York in 1879 and the exclusionary effects associated with the regulation of public spaces in western
  • A waste of space ? Towards a critique of the social production of space

  • 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.
  • Space–time integration in geography and GIScience
  • Accessibility ; Applied geography ; Behaviour ; Geographical information system ; Health ; Historiography ; Segregation ; Space time
  • In this special section dedicated to space-time integration in geography and GIScience, the authors analyse successively the following issues : 1-Real-time space–time integration in GIScience and geography ; 2-Prospects for a space–time GIS ; 3
  • -Beyond space (as we knew it): toward temporally integrated geographies of segregation, health, and accessibility ; 4-On the cyberinfrastructure for GIS-enabled historiography ; 5-Space–time behavior research in China: recent development and future

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Narrating interracial relations and the negotiation of public spaces
  • Ethnic community ; Gender ; Public space ; Sexual behaviour ; Space ; Spatial behaviour ; United States of America
  • The purpose of the paper is to examine the everyday negotiation of public spaces of an African-American man as he participates in interracial (hetero)sexual relations. Employing a narrative approach, the A. highlights the complex interactions
  • 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.
