Hybrid urban conditions

A series of selected urban situations in Torun was used as case studies to the workshop. These urban spaces were considered in their multiplicity of dimensions: the physical and built space, the social space of use and of encounter, the imaginary space of urban narratives, the layered space of the networked media communication, the fluid acoustic space, the ghost space of history, the 5-dimensional space of the future… These spatial multiple dimensions were not considered separately and in isolation but in their superimpositions and fusions, i.e., space was addressed in its hybrid condition.
