Tracts are spaces with a designated purpose, spaces that structure and organize actions. These actions can be mundane, as with the freeways, or touristic, as in the Alpine spaces in which we are confronted with a kind of amusement infrastructure. The sequences of action of these spatial structures and usually also the architecture are characterized by uniformity and repetition. I am interested in the tension of these places. From the perspective of Western architecture, they are often considered to be “non-places”. By contrast, Asian cultures generally regard freeways and streets as integrating elements of a city rather than as isolated areas.
