Infrastructural Voids are empty spaces inside city congestion that have the peculiarity of having enough scale and proximity with dense city to be extremely relevant and, at the same time, that are completely underused as places of chaos, disorder and general infrastructures.
They are the symbols of present congestion, precisely because they are some of the only existing remaining free spaces in high-dense cities.
They are a consequence of fast-urbanization processes, and their relevance could be enormous if well understood and managed, mainly by public institutions.
