Urban spaces serve as canvases where individuals weave their personal or collective narratives, crafting unique scenarios against a backdrop of time and emotion. Among these layers, certain spaces find themselves in transitional states, adopting either fleeting or enduring atmospheres, aptly described as ‘urban melancholy.’ Regrettably, these spaces are gradually vanishing from the city’s tapestry, as urban renewal projects prioritize optimism and happiness, leading to their regeneration or complete reconstruction. This experiment seeks to delve into these evocative urban spaces and explore the distinct conditions that foster a sense of melancholy.
