The course defines a critical vision towards the interactions between the cultural models of urban life and their spatial correlations.

The analysis is given through the structural oppositions of public-private, sacred-profane, ours-theirs, and their application to space-use by the different social strata and cultures. Recent history of the city life in in relation to the urban space habitation in Europe and the US is exposed in its diachronic transition from industrial to post-industrial city.
