Abstract

This paper re-frames the work of participatory development architect John Turner in 1960s Peru as a practical realisation of the political potential of autogestive space advocated in Henri Lefebvre’s post-Marxist discourse. An analysis of the anarchistic politics that underpin Turner’s participatory development reveals a critical intersection of autogestion and informal space, and subsequently a questioning of the socio-spatial resonances of anarchist practices and Marxist theories. This analysis is exemplified by the critical re-framing of Lefebvre’s much cited proposition of ‘The (Social) Production of (Social) Space’ against Turner’s anarchist questioning of ‘Who Decides and Who Provides?’
