‘Hybridisation in situ’ is a theoretical practice of the transformation of physical space in established historical urban fabrics. The loss of the public dimension of towns and cities corresponds to the death of the urbs, an efficient hybrid model in which the public and private spheres are continuously combined and interchanged in a dynamic and stratified system that is continuously evolving. Hybridisation can provide an answer to the need to transform critical historical contexts, which instead of traditional two dimensional urban growth models, use the three dimensional nature of a hybrid model which acts in the dialectic between porosity and density on the physical structure of towns and cities. This creates new opportunities for the use and enhancement of existing residual spaces and new aesthetic experiences for the re-conquest of the heart of towns and cities.

Keywords: Hybridisation; city; residual spaces
