Spacing Identity: The role of Spatial, Material and Social Entanglements

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The paper addresses the question of how architectural design and the changes in organizationalspaces and material artifacts this involves, contribute to the continuous shaping of identities in anorganization. Based upon a case study of an organizational and architectural change process in amunicipality administration, at a time of major political reforms within the Danish public sector, weexplore how architectural design affects the “micro politics” of everyday work to (re)form tasks andprofessional relationships – while also being implicated in the unfolding of a larger political agenda.Aspiring to contribute to the further theorizing of space in relation to the everyday practices andencounters of an organization, we propose the notion of “spacing identity” as a concept that cancapture the processual aspects of organizational space.
