Abstract

In the idea of the border as a meeting place, space can be conceived in inclusive and multi- identity terms, transforming itself into an interesting catalyst for forms of territorial imagination. These contexts attest to architectures and territories linked to them as separating factors in which complex and contradictory aspects are intertwined determined by physical, normative, functional and socio-cultural conditions. Starting from this, the present study moves in search of the territorial repercussions put in place by the border closure in a process of continuous transformation that conquers over time the form of flexible filter made up of open and other closed systems that adapt to the logic of collaboration and the coexistence of antinomic and oppositional aspects. A spatiality with an unusual organization appears, poised between going and staying, which has its roots in the uncertainty that determined it and which is the reason for a settlement process that coordinates a coexistence between opposites architectural system with a particular character. Examining the borderlands in the context of urban planning and architecture, the constitutive thought offers a singular interpretation in the form of spatiality with a suspended character, uncertain between controversial temporariness: in a present of permanence and a future of abandonment. The study is therefore in contrast with the stereotyped vision of staying on the circumscribed limit to a despotic and totalitarian spatiality (typical of first reception camps) and presupposes instead, an objective-critical observation of how people live, how they move, how they use these places.
