Border Environments

The first publication in the Centre for Research Architecture book series exploring pedagogy, politics, and practices.

Border Environments investigates the entanglement of ecology and migration. It examines the interplay between discriminatory politics, emergent technologies, and bordering practices within the context of (constructed) natures by highlighting a variety of interventions, investigative techniques, visual projects, and modes of witnessing that address the role of both human and more-than-human actors in border struggles. As such, the book is also a provocation that can be used to identify and organise new lines of struggle connecting environmental and mobility justice.
