More Information
This innovative book defines the concept of immured spaces across time, space and culture and investigates various categories of restricted places such as divided, segregated and protected spaces.

Drawing on examples from across the world, this book analyses not only what separates and divides space, but also the wide variety of impacts that the imposition of new barriers and boundaries or the opening of existing ones has on places, people and surrounding areas. Contributors integrate case studies with theoretical analysis to draw conclusions and advance an analytical framework of immured spaces. The chapters present a point of reference to highlight areas of significance and also to encourage further detailed work in this important area.

The book has a strong research dimension and will therefore be of interest to academic communities in planning, cultural heritage, psychology, architecture and urban studies. In addition, the use of case studies to develop a common framework will appeal to practitioners and policy makers.
Critical Acclaim
‘In Boundaries and Restricted Places, Balkız Yapıcıoğlu and Konstantinos Lalenis present a sometimes disquieting, sometimes inspiring collection of case studies on immured spaces. From the Old Jewish cemetery in Wrocław, gated communities in Brazil, or the forbidden part of Piraeus, the journey continues to borders in Ireland or Beirut, Nicosia or Indian slums. Scholars of border studies, geography, or spatial planning and architecture will cherish this rich contribution to a better understanding of enclosure and exclusion.’
– Ben Davy, Visiting Professor, University of Johannesburg, South Africa

‘Sometimes a testament to nationalism, racism, exclusivity, insecurity, or xenophobia, immured spaces and their material representations – walls, borders, gates, and boundaries – have always been an attribute of the urban. This collection of essays expands our notion of immured spaces and pushes us to rethink them through its rich account of material and immaterial, real and perceived spaces for the living and for the dead from different cities around the globe.’
– Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris, University of California, Los Angeles, US
