Description: New Town challenges contemporary approaches to the study of space as cultural practice. This paper aims to elucidate New Town as an intersubjectively understood social space by blending Henri Lefebvre's theory of space as performative and relational with Bruno Latour's conception of the social as a network of ontologically negotiable 'actors.' I suggest that the spatial practice of New Town situates subjects before a sort of lived menu, a leveled array of juxtaposed, consumptive possibilities.
