Dr. Adam Fraser - The Third Space

Dr. Adam Fraser - The Third Space | Third Spaces | Scoop.it

Daily we undertake dozens of different roles and tasks. Dr Adam's research and the research he partnered with Deakin University on showed that what we do in this transitional gap (The Third Space) has a huge impact on our happiness, performance and balance. The research also showed that all too often we carry the mindset and emotional state from one activity to the next – leading to negative and occasionally disastrous consequences.

Lisa Hosokawa's insight:

Conceptualizing moment of transition (time) as space for letting go and switching focus.

サード・プレイスから都市再生を考える

アメリカの社会学者「レイ・オールデンバー グ(Ray Oldenburg)」は 1989 年に著書「The Great Good Place」にて、「サード・プレイス」 を都市の魅力を高める概念として提唱した。 その「サード・プレイス」の概念は凡そ次のよう に述べられている。

都市には都市居住者にとって生活上欠か せない二つの居場所に加え、居心地の良い 三番目の場所「サード・プレイス」が必要であ り、「サード・プレイス」の在り方が都市の魅力 を大きく左右する。生活上欠かせない二つの 居場所とは、ファースト・プレイス(第一の居 場所)である家、セカンド・プレイス(第二の居 場所)である職場や学校である。この2箇所 の必要性は、全ての国や都市で認識されて おり、整備も進んでいる。しかし、サード・プレ イスの必要性とその在り方は地域によって大 きな差がある。

Hacking the Spaces

"Sociological termed "third spaces" are spaces that break through the dualistic scheme of bourgeois spatial structure with places to live and places to work (plus places for spare time activities). They represent an integrative way that refuses to accept a lifestyle which is formed through such a structure. This means they can come to cooperative and non-repressive ways of working on e.g. technical problems that may result in new and innovative solutions. And that's exactly where Adorno's "Wrong Life" could slip in too. 
The Capitalist system is a highly adaptable entity. And so it isn't surprising that alternative spaces and forms of living provided interesting ideas that could be milked and marketed. So certain structural features of these "indie" movement outputs were suddenly highly acclaimed, applied and copy-pasted into capitalist developing laboratories. These qualities fit best into the tendency in which -- by the end of the seventies -- bourgeois society started to update and re-launch using the experiences gained through countercultural projects. Mainstream harvested the knowledge that was won in these projects and used it."
