Terrain Vague: Interstices at the Edge of the Pale

        In "Terrain Vague" by Ignasi de Solà-Morales, the term is explored as a dynamic concept in urbanism, describing overlooked or marginalized spaces. Solà-Morales sees these neglected areas not as voids but as potentially rich terrains for architectural intervention. His theory challenges traditional urban perspectives, emphasizing the importance of embracing ambiguity and fostering creative, adaptive responses to these neglected spaces. Solà-Morales proposes a reevaluation of conventional urban planning, advocating for a more nuanced understanding of these ambiguous terrains as sources of inspiration rather than problems to be solved. His work prompts a reconsideration of how architects and planners engage with and shape the evolving urban landscape.
