The Control of Space: mediating fear in the urban condition

Output Type:Chapter in a book
Publication:Isolative Urbanism
Publisher:Bauprint, Manchester

Increasingly the design of (public) space is concerned with the control of that space, its visual permeability, its surveillance and the capacity for crowd control. It is the proximity of digital and real space that is testing these realities and challenging the convention of behavioural patterns. The question of what constitutes community, networked and residual space is of concern here as are devices of appropriation, enclosure, severance, fragmentation, and cultural identification of space.
