Border Conditions presents the first results of research initiated for the architecture Masters programme at Delft University of Technology. Firing the enthusiasm of teachers and students alike, the ambitious programme focussed on the spatial impact of socio-political developments, with an emphasis on mapping the contemporary urban milieu. Current debate surrounding borders in architecture is explored throughout the book, from conflict zones to marginal urban areas; from Gibraltar, Kaliningrad and Kiev to Benidorm, Marseille and Rotterdam. A selection of projects shows how mapping can be used to register and interpret urban processes, and how these design principles act as catalysts for architectural interventions.
