Temperatures of Urbanity – Fringe territories as a field of experimentation outside the big city cores
How to approach fringes? How to approach a zone of transition, a shortdistanced difference, an in-betweenness charged with opportunities? In fact, these territories of uncertainty inherit a certain kind of urbanity, albeit they resist classifications such as peripheral or sub-/peri-urban. However, fringe territories could be a field of experimentation outside the big city cores – generating new ideas on how we will live together in an urbanised world. So, it’s high time to (re)interpret the fringe as a dynamic component of an agglomeration’s agency and creativity.
