Contrasting the spaces of “fullness” are closely connected spaces of “emptiness,” – voids, often separated in most cases from the “full” spaces by time rather than by space, as Marc Augè has commented.[1] A fundamental characteristic of our time is ultimately these emptiness spaces which tend to fill our perception of the contemporary city, once operating as ancient city walls now defining and focusing  our “urban” attention. Thus, the built and the void confront one another, going back and forth till a total confusion is achieved.
