Urban space is a social process always in the making

Urban space is not a simple container within which social relations are spun, but in itself a social process always in the making (see Massey 1999: 6 ff.). Space is, therefore, essentially about the social practices which constantly form and constitute it, and an ever-unfinished product of everyday practices (though it is, of course, also produced on other scales).”
