Description - Drifting - Architecture and Migrancy by Stephen Cairns

In an era of globalisation, there is an unprecedented scale and nature of contemporary migrant flows, as well as the flow of goods, capital, ideas, images and technology. This sheer number and mobility of contemporary migrants clearly has massively disruptive effects on traditional modes of dwelling however they were manifest in everyday life. But contemporary migrancy also has important consequences for the way dwelling is conceptualised more generally. This book is concerned with the modes of dwelling that emerge through migrancy; it is also concerned with the effects these modes of dwelling have for dominant conceptions of space and place; and finally, it is interested in the kinds of architectures that become possible if those effects are taken seriously. Ackbar Abbas, Mike Austin, Stephen Cairns, Paul Carter, Mike Davis, Andrew Dawson, Jacques Derrida, Catherine Ingraham, Jane M Jacobs, Mark Johnson, Mirjana Lozanovska, Katharyne Mitchell, Brian Morri
