Monu #8: Border Urbanism


Book ID: 78715

Pap. Cities built close to borders often foster very specific economic features and urban anomalies, encouraged by different regulations and opportunities. Examples are found in the infamous prostitution clusters on the German Ð Czech border and along the US Ð Mexico border which has, for example, transformed the city of San Diego into the world's largest gated community. Seventeen essays and projects explore this growing phenomenon within the context of globalisation.

English 140 pp, b/w illustrations.
