Swiss binding. Publisher's description: This publication explores the contested territory between the state and corporate drive to 'securitise' urban space -- and the principle of the city as a site for enacting open civil society, participatory democracy, and the freedom of speech and assembly. The book functions as a broader discursive platform mediating opposing positions at the intersection of architecture/urbanism and security/democracy.
