“The objective of 11th issue of Articulo – Journal of Urban Research – is to examine the urban night as an innovative space-time on different scales and in different geographic contexts.

In the introduction, authors remind the the reader that the night has often been approached negatively. Process of colonization of the night and the pressures and strains experienced by the individuals, communities, organizations and neighborhoods of the “polychronic city” are examined.

Second part is dedicated to the innovations unfolding in cities at night in different fields: economic, social, environmental and cultural.

Last section explores the possible contributions of “night studies” to urban nights, urban planning and sustainable development.”
