Through a collection of essays from various disciplines focusing on international case studiesfrom India to Europe to Latin America the publication explores the multifaceted concept of spatial tensions as a lens for better understanding contemporary urban transformations. While tensions often depend on spatial dispositives and superstructures, they also offer a powerful key for design practices and strategies.

Articulates an innovative view of the spatial conflicts as a catalyst for urban design and spatial transformation

Benefits from a wide range of transnational case studies

Is supported by refined maps and accurate drawings
