Starting from the difference between “place” and “space”, we propose to define the concept of hybrid space for characterizing a place in which people and technologies cohabit in a synergic way. Having this goal in mind and aiming at sustainable mobility, we focused on biking as a way of living urban spaces and we interviewed a group of people with the aim of discovering the relations between these notions. After analyzing the results of the interviews, we propose to adopt a critical design approach to encourage the reflection about the perceptions of place and space from users to define the concept of hybrid space as a pleasure place in which people live and with they build an affective relation.

Abstract

Starting from the difference between “place” and “space”, we propose to define the concept of hybrid space for characterizing a place in which people and technologies cohabit in a synergic way. Having this goal in mind and aiming at sustainable mobility, we focused on biking as a way of living urban spaces and we interviewed a group of people with the aim of discovering the relations between these notions. After analyzing the results of the interviews, we propose to adopt a critical design approach to encourage the reflection about the perceptions of place and space from users to define the concept of hybrid space as a pleasure place in which people live and with they build an affective relation.
