Abstract

This paper explores the connections between whose representation of space, and whose modalities are 'desirable' as part of the design of public spaces. Drawing on the theoretical framework of Henri Lefebvre, we reiterate the importance of 'spatial practice' as a key tenet running right through the urban 'design control' process. Second, we examine the ways in which subsequent multi-modal representations of urban space might act as a rejoinder to questions raised by the 'moral geographies' literature, concluding that a consideration of 'moral geographies' offers one way to unlock the multi-modal qualities associated with a progressive sensory urbanism.
