RESEARCH Paris 2020 recherche en site sur des espaces urbaines
Paris is probably the most densely built-up city in Europe. The standard of spatial perception is different from that of Berlin for example. Our research covers the urban area of Paris. Inside and outside the "peripherique". It is not so much a question of producing a descriptive archive or cataloque of significant public spaces, but of identifying specific typologies of space that are characteristic for Paris. And it is less a phenomenological research but one that aimes to find out how the way Parisiens perceive, understand and probably occupy their city differs from inhabitants of other cities. If a different tradition of perception exists and how this again influences the production of public space and urban scenery.
