Porosity refers to the existing physical or organisational structures that are open (unfinished) for new improvisations or initiatives. It also refers to the notion of “Spatialising the dialogue about space” or “making space more open for for dialogue” (and new improvisations or initiatives that we also call Offshoots)

One important inspiration for our work with Porosity is the essay of Walter Benjamin and Asja Lacis on Naples that they wrote together in 1925.

One example on how we worked with Porosity was the Open garden where kids could start building spatial experiments as a way of taking part in the dialogue on the future of that part of the city.
