Edges: Written and Visual Reflections on Marginal Space and its Exploration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Rapid modernisation has involved drastic spatial transformation and the consequent appearance of ruinous sites on the fringe as well as in the centre of urban landscapes: aborted constructions amongst the high-rises; industrial derelicts; vacated or abandoned buildings left behind during periods of urban development and social changes; confiscated yards. The city, the metaphorically domesticated space of order and regulation, where boundaries ought to be delimited and linear, has increasingly enclosed such elements b these modern ruins b that transgress and subvert our everyday encounter with space and place.
