The Airport & The Camp

Existing architectural manifestations of political exception are the Airport and the Camp: semi-urban typologies distinguished by controlled access and circulation, vertical walls, and a manipulation of view to the outside. Both provide venues for the collective and the individual, within a spectrum of multi-scalar spatial conditions.

While the airport operates as a circuit and node network, the camp behaves as a figured field.

Still, both are enclosed, apolitical spaces that operate within but outside of their immediate context. This typology could be urbanized by opening up the extraterritorial zone into a ground of exception in the city.
