Theme issue - Open House International:
Research Perspectives on Urban Performance: Between the Imagined, the Measured, and the Experienced

A multitude of diverse attributes is required for effective urban performance at various scales ranging from the immediate context of public buildings to central urban spaces, and from urban corridors to residential neighborhoods. Following their earlier works, Ashraf Salama and David Grierson frame these qualities under three main symbiotic pillars: the imagined, the measured, and the experienced, which contribute to the development of insights that elucidate parameters for exploring urban performance.

Contributions to this issue of Open House International (OHI) may address the way in which decision-making processes, led by policymakers and discipline experts, contribute to successful urban environments, how the social and spatial practices of key actors (investors, developers, and users) manifest diverse urban activities, and how users attach to places and identify with their surroundings as a basis for social and spatial justice. Contributions are expected to address one of the three pillars while offering implications on the other two.
