本論文藉列斐伏爾的空間生產理論來探討閒置空間再利用中的政治及經濟體現，並選巴黎奧塞美術館－典型的從古蹟、歷史建築改建為博物館的成功案例；台北華山1914文化創意產業園區－台灣閒置空間再利用為藝文空間成功的先例；高雄駁二藝術特區－以華山文創園區為範例，為台灣南部閒置空間再利用為藝文空間的成功案例。探討三個個案空間的運作模式與空間概念理論的評析。 Henri Lefebvre contends that material "space" is essentially a political domain. More specifically, urban space is an active representation of how economic theory and methods influence political ideology; the planning of urban space is a manifestation of political norms which then shape society and culture. The capitalist system appropriates urban space to generate profit. Urban facilities and buildings become capital assets; as such, planning of urban space can now be consumed, replicated and reproduced for business purposes.
This thesis applies Henri Lefebvre''s space production theory to three cases of abandoned spaces being reproduced to become valuable assets by rethinking their function, orientation and historical significance. The selected cases are Musee d’Orsay in France, Huashan1914 Creative Park in Taipei and Pier-2 Art Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
