The space of an enclave is difficult to define. Some have boundaries, whether physical, administrative, political, or cultural. Others do not have boundaries but are characterized by social, economic, or cultural homogeneity. What is consistent, however, are operations to differentiate what happens within and what occurs outside. This thesis stream will investigate “enclaves”, whether ecological, economic, social, political, or physical, and the logics of their formation. These landscapes could range from urban to rural, from communities to villages to territories, from material to conceptual. Students should anticipate exploring theoretical and conceptual approaches to the representation and design of spatial enclaves.
