In order to understand in what terms hybridisation can be spoken of in the field of architecture, case studies are reviewed in ‘Hybridisation figures: the dialectic in the oppositions in the architectural and urban hybrid’ that belong to different times and contexts, in which the simultaneous presence of different spatial categories, typical features and levels of technology are highlighted as the result of an operation akin to that of hybridisation as this is defined in the field of science. The capacity of a hybrid to reconcile opposites and to integrate them in a result actually enriched by the dialectic between antithetic conditions is recognised and the dialectical pairs identified from a selection of references to the field of urban design is discussed: the hybridisation of open and built space and of public and private; functional mixité as opposed to the separation and specialisation of functions; the relationship between architecture and nature and finally that between architecture and sculpture.

Keywords: Typical features; spatial categories; dialectical pairs
