An Ethology of Urban Fabric(s)

Jonas Fritsch, Bodil Marie Stavning Thomsen

Research output: Journal Article or Conference Article in JournalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The article explores a non-metaphorical understanding of urban fabric(s), shifting the attention from a bird’s eye perspective to the actual, textural manifestations of a variety of urban fabric(s) to be studied in their real, processual, ecological and ethological complexity within urban life. We effectuate this move by bringing into resonance a range of intersecting fields that all deal with urban fabric(s) in complementary ways (interaction design and urban design activism, fashion, cultural theory, philosophy, urban computing).
