[TESTING-GROUND is a design research journal focused on research, experimentation and design of landscapes, cities and territories. More about TESTING-GROUND]


What resides on the other side can cause fear, concern, intrigue, delight and fascination. Neighbouring and distant lands are destinations to visit, invade, occupy and separate ourselves from. Many territorial borders are marked with walls and fences or have settled along rivers and ridges of mountains. These socially and architecturally constructed landscapes contrast with cities and towns which unite otherwise separated territories. The second issue of TESTING-GROUND focuses on concepts, structures, devices and spaces which define or integrate difference.
