Abstract

Conventional description, interpretation and design processes for public space enter into crisis in the geography of the 20th-century sprawling city denoted by enclosures. In this complex geography, often coinciding with that of drosscape, heterotopias of deviation raise thorny issues in the contemporary urban landscape. Role and shape of these now obsolete heritages must be rethought starting with the enclosure walls, a representative element of the heterotopical identity of these places.
This paper explores burial landscapes, lastscapes, as a chance for urban fragments surrounding them. These places should be interpreted as hypertopias and no longer as heterotopias, rather than “other spaces” they should be considered as public spaces. With this purpose, three design strategies are proposed, using northern European case studies: a project of rooms, a project of margins, a project of layers.
