This chapter discusses Henri Lefebvre's concept of lived spaces. Lefebvre addresses space in respect of their vision and ideology. He specifically concentrates on lived spaces and the everyday life. He then pays attention to modernity, specifically to urbanisation. He argues that the ‘urban’ is a complex field of tensions. He pushes his analyses of the urban arena even further in The Production of Space. He continuously adapts his concept of space to an evolving situation in France. He mobilises powerful arguments for the everyday world, the world in which an ecology of space is made possible that is not a passive habitus.

Keywords:   lived spaces, Henri Lefebvre, everyday life, urbanisation, urban, The Production of Space
