Other Spaces is a virtual exhibition which explores the potential of terrain vague within our cities. The architecture theorist Ignasi de Solà-Morales describes the concept of terrain vague as, “external places, strange places left outside the city’s effective circuits and productive structures”, these spaces include, “industrial areas, railway stations, ports, unsafe residential neighborhoods, and contaminated places.”
The exhibition curates ideas, proposals, and critiques that look specifically at temporary interventions to activate or make use of urban wastelands to question the life cycle and future of our urban environments.
This event was part of Melbourne Design Week 2022, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the National Gallery of Victoria.
