Space has to be discussed once one focuses on the commons, the natural and cultural resources securing the well-being of a community. The question of availability of these resources includes asking for the place where they are accessible or where they are made accessible and thus always the question of the spatial organization of this society. This publication wants to provide a first overview about historical types of commons, about contemporary theories on urban commons, and speculate about possible forms of future commoning.
