Spaces of knowing. Examining the role of knowledge - and technology - intensive services of development and transformation of building types

Abstract : Starting from the assumption that relations of production occur in space, the paper sets out the goal to investigate the role of knowledge- and technology-intensive services, with their particular requirements and practices, in development and transformation of building types. Given the focus on spatiality of today’s economic activity, the paper examines the account of two small-scale metropolitan-based knowledge clusters (entrepreneurship lab NUMA in Paris and research platform HOLM in Frankfurt) as shared spaces for emerging entrepreneurial relationships. The exploratory analysis is followed by the theoretical development that identifies set of relevant urban and architectural properties. Research results provide understanding of the building type that is not built using the conventional logic of constructing and deconstructing, but it is assembled of heterogeneous networks of people and practices and that is both the medium and the outcome of the interactions it organises.
