In Dakar, open space represents the real condition necessary for the expression of endogenous social emancipation, attributed a key role by the literature in mitigating the polarising effects of globalisation. This paper advances the hypothesis that, faced with reaching a critical threshold in the progressive saturation of unconstructed urban space, the design of constructed space and its borders in the Senegalese capital today assumes relative autonomy in supporting (or precluding) the informal process of the reappropriation of the city. This hypothesis, supported by the results of research in the field, is tested by the diachronic spatial analysis of a specific urban area - the waterfront - in part from the perspective of a radical change in the scenario of the urban development of Dakar.
