Porosity: The Architecture of Invagination changes our view of cities as collections of individual buildings. By prejudicing public space and finding previously undefined public spaces within them, "Chiastic Space", it presents ideas for a radically transformed western city. By studying, defining and indexing these spaces, Goodwin has found "what a building desires" to do next in its determination to facilitate new technologies, new building-to-building connections and demands on its program.
