This research project explores a four-year (and on-going) research project into the production of informal spaces. Informal spaces (or something akin to informal spaces) are known variously as: autonomous, transgressive, or loose spaces; or terrain vague, and are often found in derelict or left over parts of the city. European examples include travellers’ camps, squatted spaces, wastelands etc, whereas in the ‘global south’ there are entire informal cities, for example the slums in Mumbai, barrios in Sao Paolo and the nation-site of Haiti. The project exlpores the role(s) of informal cities and spaces, and how they might inform and enrich the formal city.
