This thesis explores the possibility of a void space present between multiple working systems of a city. The void can be defined as an intermediate space between systems where logic clashes to undertake the constant rebuilding of the city. It is a set of relations under a constant definition, a hub of conflicting economic and cultural exchanges.
The identity of each system implements itself in the form of a void space between them, a presence of absence which is composed of unity and disparity. The balance of both these logics unites the systems and the disparity provides the necessary disjoint so that each system maintains its own specific identity. As opposed to restoring urban continuity, this research in no way attempts to reconcile the disparities encouraging, instead the opposed and often conflicting logics of multiple systems.
