Between the Lines: Borders, Territory and Space

ARC465H1 F2
Instructor: Anne-Marie Armstrong
Meeting Section: L0103
Fall 2022

This seminar focuses on urbanism and architecture’s relationship with borders as political, ecological, and topological conditions. As key instruments in defining the logistics of space and territory, borders operate at multiple scales from the local to the global, and from the constructed to the imaginary. Students will explore how borders reinforce inclusion and exclusion in space, and how designers can engage with, and transform, border conditions as they navigate on the edge, margins, and thresholds in-between.
