Urban Society and Its Architecture

(p.165) 4 Project
Henri Lefebvre on Space

Łukasz Stanek

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses the methods used in analyzing architecture and the urban society in the context of space. The analysis of architecture is linked with the practice of architects as a producer of space, but they are not the only one who operates within a specific space—the sheet of white paper. This chapter examines the perspective of Henri Lefebvre’s work on the possibility of differential space which contradicts abstract space of postwar capitalism. It also describes Lefebvre’s project as a specific orientation of his theorizing of space in general.

Keywords:   architecture, urban society, space, Henri Lefebvre, differential space, abstract space, postwar capitalism
