The Production of Space – Henri Lefebvre

The Production of Space is Lefebvre’s most influential work in the English speaking context. The book itself takes in a vast array of ‘disciplines’ and the whole time it is informed by the “project of a different society, a different mode of production, where social practice would be governed by different conceptual determinations” (Lefebvre, 1991:419). Seeking to bridge the gap between theory and practice – mental and real space – Lefebvre faces up to the complexity of the capitalist contemporary city and attempts to define a “unitary theory of space”.
