Summary: What is the porous city? How could porosity become an urban concept? Well-known authors from the worlds of architecture, urbanism, and landscape design embark on a search for new concepts for a life-enhancing city, with reference to this enigmatic term. The term refers to the overlaying and interweaving of spaces and structures, to urban textures and their architectural properties and qualities -- to cities with radically mixed urban functions.
