Third Spaces’ is the second book of a series on the architectural practice TERROIR, established in 1998 by Richard Blythe, Gerard Reinmuth, and Scott Balmforth. The book begins with a conceptual framework around which a variety of projects, both recent and past, come into focus. Large projects often have a significant impact, intended or otherwise, on the public domain. This has led TERROIR to develop a strategy for third spaces that are usually not in the brief, and at times actually resist the functional logic of a project, yet are designed in the interests of greater urban openness, engagement, and generosity. The book features essays by John Hong and Andrew Benjamin.
