Abstract
In architecture, what does use mean? This article explores the theory of use in Giorgio Agamben’s works, confronting a series of oppositions between use, property, appropriation, use value and right to use, to finally reach a beyond-the-use condition of the common, where common is not just free to use, but rather free from use: a condition of pure availability.
