Summary/Abstract: The city, one of the most polysemous spaces is perpetually penetrated by various practises, creative actions, multidimensional activity, artistic creations including also design practises. The city is a peculiar heterotopia, where also through design practices all that is practical penetrate with what is aesthetical, science with art, information with interpretation. Design practices serve integration of the things' world with the man's life. These are somehow a synonym of the human environment, which is generated by people and for people - artefactual environment. Design has an ability to tangle and involve people with the surrounding reality in a manner that they do not only contemplate or consume ambient things, but live with what is material and immaterial in close symbiosis.
