“The Dead Zone & the Architecture of Transgression” research centres on everyday life in non-planned urban spaces (mainly derelict sites, urban voids, in between spaces) vs. designed public space and the ways in which marginalized communities use both spaces. The research (conducted at the Bartlett, UCL under the supervision of Prof. Iain Borden & Prof. Colin Fournier) is multidisciplinary in nature, using architectural history, urban design, urban anthropology, human geography, and arts (mainly photography and film) while also looking at these urban spaces from discourse-critique, post-colonial, socio-political, economic and aesthetic perspectives. The research is international in scope and includes examples from Europe, America, Asia and Africa.
