Spatial Theory, Temporality and Public Action


  • Fache Jacques

    (University of Angers, UMR 6590 - CARTA - 11 bd Lavoisier, 49 045 Angers Cedex 01, France)


Innovation and information combined with ICTs constitute a new framework which questions the theories on the functioning of classic space and stresses the need to think of new frames. The principle of acentrality proposed here highlights the role of politics in the structuring of space, as well as the role of temporality. For public planning policies to be relevant, acentrality and temporality must be taken into account.
