Lena Kilina的研究根植于对空间与人口的关系，她通过巴西和中国的案例来分析空间人类学在金砖国家的发展状况。在这次讲座中，她将对比位于圣保罗的Minhocão高架桥公园和上海红坊这两个地点，讨论它们以空间形态存在的意图，并分析导致它们一处成为休闲区，而另一处却非如此的原因。我们可以将红坊的形成看作是一个悄然萌芽的孵化区，相比之下， Minhocão高架桥公园的存在更像是必须被放在圣保罗大环境下去考虑的一种城市现象。
This research builds on the conversation about the relationship between space and people, with the focus on the anthropology of space and the introduction of state of play (engagement) which in the framework of BRICS, as described in the case studies of Brazil and China.
The modern colonial geographies’ viewpoint may urge us to rethink these notions with the emergence of alternative functions of some spaces, and the re-imagination of urban space by what it may be named global modernity. At the local, regional, national and global context, space is not an empty element, but is complicated mixture of social and public relations and meanings.
The intend contrast between the Sao Paulo site--Minhocão and Shanghai space- Redtown was to identify some key factors regarding why one space “works” for play and one does not. Redtown can be defined as the still birth of an incubator, and as such provides a means for investigating the reasons as to why it does not work as a planned arts hub, including the reasons it never worked as a site of play. The park Minhocão in contrast is an urban phenomenon that can be considered in the context of the urban space of São Paulo, and as an urban construction without the involvement of residents in the surrounding areas.
