To Unbreak by Breaking: Design Against EnclosureEmily Eliza Scott in conversation with Christoph Küffer

The dream of unbroken enclosure is personified, among other, in the endless proliferation of climate-controlled interiors and gleaming architectural facades that mark the neoliberal city. Indeed, the contemporary moment is increasingly characterised by stark divisions between various insides and outsides.
