This talk introduces a series of projects of atelier d'architecture autogérée (aaa) in Paris. aaa is concerned with micro-urban tactics for the reconstruction of spaces of proximity from the margins, boundaries and interstices. These interventions permit the creation of a collective subjectivity that is capable of porous territorial appropriation and political transformation out of the everyday. They initiate a process of democratization of spaces of proximity in the city through "agencements jardiniers" (gardening agencies) and actions that involve ordinary places and their inhabitants. In these projects, the spatial production is explicitly described as political, social and cultural. Constantin Petcou is an architect, researcher, activist and founding member of aaa.
