        • A Narrative Approach to Collective Spaces
          Urban Analysis and the Empowerment of Local Voices

        Abstract
        Streetscape Territories is the name given to a research project about the transformation of the urban fabric that manifests itself through the constant reconfiguration of its streetscapes. The research deals with the way architectural elements, property structures and their inherent permeability models, together with emerging programmatic adjacencies, conFig. streetscapes and how their inhabitants can read and give meaning to them. The research method is based on unveiling multiple narratives of a place through on-site observation and mapping, close collaborations and conversations with stakeholders with a strong focus on permeability and models of proximity within a street or a neighbourhood. The project distinguishes three main approaches. The first is defined by a rather anthropological standpoint that leads to observations of everyday life practices and taking the inhabitants as the protagonists of the project. Secondly, the narrative approach is characterised by multiplicity, meaning that the reading of the projects seeks to detect more than one story, more than one voice. Thirdly, the systematically unveiling of narrative layers – more than disentangling lines – is based on an actualisation of palimpsest analysis approaches. This triple framework is considered a common starting point to explore and unfold more specific research and design projects, depending on their sociocultural contexts.

      superficialities
      even the most exalted starts to stink”
