Jasim Azhar

Investigating the role of urban 'in-between' spaces.

Jasim looks at the leftover spaces in cities and the opportunities they provide from a sustainability point of view.

Various researchers have pointed out the issues, conditions and importance of positive utilization of leftover spaces. However there is insufficient information available about to do it.

For this research a broad spectrum of information about in-between spaces will be drawn together and analyzed. Jasim will then look at spatial design strategies, classification and determine the contribution these spaces can make to sustainability.
