How can urban places be read and interpreted by sociologies that are not specifically urban? Some useful answers to this question that reminds urban sociologists of the crossings made inside their own discipline by social sciences that are near but different such as anthropology and history may be found in a theoretical essay written by American sociologist David Brain. 20th century towns and architectures, seen through US public housing, are presented not only as a social construction but also as a cultural object and a problematic professional product. What comes out from this transversal sociology of artifacts is an open paradigm: to come across such disciplinary openings which is almost inevitable when you take the town not only as your own research field but also as a place where different sociologies can talk can lead urban sociologists to face useful epistemological reflections on their own disciplinary identity.
