It is here <br/> that we let mistakes happen; rewrite abruptly our urban plans. Here does the <i>urban</i> collide <br/> with the <i>rural</i>; the <i>new</i> clashes with the <i>old</i>; different processes contradict each other. <br/><br/> And exactly those <i>paradoxical spaces</i>, those urban oxymora, are what hold a promise for humour, <br/> surprise, fantasy and magic in our otherwise rather monotone city, the somehow boring urban <br/> text we daily read around us. <br/><br/><br/> <img border=0 src="paradoxical-spaces1.jpg" style="width:297px; height:200px" alt="Paradoxical Spaces"/> &nbsp; <img border=0 src="paradoxical-spaces2.jpg" style="width:297px; height:200px" alt="Paradoxical Spaces"/> <br/><br/> <img border=0 src="paradoxical-spaces3.jpg" style="width:297px; height:200px" alt="Paradoxical Spaces"/> &nbsp; <img border=0 src="paradoxical-spaces4.jpg" style="width:297px; height:200px" alt="Paradoxical Spaces"/><br/><br/> <img border=0 src="paradoxical-spaces5.jpg" style="width:297px; height:200px" alt="Paradoxical Spaces"/> &nbsp; <img border=0 src="paradoxical-spaces6.jpg" style="width:297px; height:200px" alt="Paradoxical Spaces"/> <br/><br/><br/> Visual article published in <i><a style="text-decoration:none; color:grey" href="https://www.routledge.com/Terrain-Vague-Interstices-at-the-Edge-of-the-Pale/BARRON-Mariani/p/book/9780415827683" target="_blank">Terrain Vague - Interstices at the Edge of the Pale</a></i>.<br/> </p> </div> </body> </html>
