This publication is focussed at the interplay of 2 parts inside this modern state of affairs. the 1st is the very proposal of a spot we think to be specified and good. this concept is explored via structure, the establishment that during the West has claimed the accountability for imagining and generating areas alongside those traces. the second one aspect is a selected type of international circulation, particularly the human flows of immigrants, refugees, exiles, guestworkers and different migrant teams. This ebook conscientiously inspects the intersections among architectures of position and flows of migrancy. It does so with no looking to safeguard the assumption of position, nor lament its passing. really this ebook is an exploration of the customarily complicated and unorthodox modes of living which are rising accurately from in the ruins of the belief of position. This exploration is expert by way of serious analyses of structure and urbanism, and their illustration in media similar to film.

The ebook is lively empirically through a suite of overlapping and intersecting trajectories that shift from Hong Kong to Canada, Australia and Germany; from Southern Europe to Australia; from Britain to India, Canada and New Zealand; from Southeast Asia, to the Pacific Islands, to New Zealand; and from Latin the US and East Asia to the U.S.. yet every one geographical context mentioned represents just one aspect inside of a much wider trend of stream that implicates different localities, and so indications the very undoing of a unified geographical logic.
