Between the centrality of the urban centres and the most extreme peripheries, these places are free of any urban pressure and remain motionless next to the fast roads entering and exiting major cities. This is how they escape from becoming identities caricatured and modelled to tourists’ tastes or from ending up devastated and levelled like the farthest outskirts of the city centres. In «generic space», a certain morphology emerges that is apparently carefree about its personality and only at the service of urban pragmatism. Paradoxically, this carelessness regarding their identity is what gives them their own, unmistakable and totally recognisable character. Their uniqueness tends to be generic.
