The paper discusses the ambiguous character of spaces in-between the panoramic â€śconcept cityâ€ť and the immersive â€śthick cityâ€ť. It is argued; firstly; that the theoretical understanding of such intermediary urban spaces in general; and intermediary communication geographies in particular; has been underdeveloped in media studies. These spaces are crucial if we are to grasp the reproduction and change of cities â€“ notably the interaction between images; representations and social practice. Secondly; it is argued that the concepts of texture and fixture are appropriate for a re-thinking of intermediary communication geographies. Texture refers to the communicative fabric of space â€“ shaped as networks of/for circulation â€“ symbolic as well as material in kind. Fixtures are the strong points in textural webs. They contribute to the reproduction of textures; while at the same time working as nodes of circulation. They appear as both hermeneutic loci (festivals; rituals; cultural scenes; etc) and more material infrastructural nodes (web servers; media buildings; outlets; etc); with no clear boundaries in-between them.
