Abstract

Drawing on Amin and Thrift's (2002) sense of cities as spaces of movement, flow and everyday practices, in this paper I suggest a broadening of investigation of social sustainability from spaces of community to urban spaces of movement by looking at everyday, ordinary spaces like train stations. I will argue that these places, defined by the routine movement and mobility of its users, are significant in providing important insights to an (overlooked) element of social sustainability, in particular by emphasising more momentary and fleeting conditions of this social dimension. I conclude by suggesting that the focus on areas of connection can add new dimensions to our current understandings of social sustainability and that these have significant implications for the making of urban places.
