Architecture, Space and Memory of Resurrection in Northern Ireland : Shareness in a Divided Nation
About this item
Northern Ireland has a complex urbanism with multi-layered socio-spatial politics. In this environment issues of communication, self-representation and expression of identity are central to the experience of urban space and architecture where the dichotomy of division and shared living are spatially exercised in everyday life. Unlike other studies in the area, this book focusses on the everyday experiences of local communities in both public and private spheres - issues of ‘sharedness’ - challenging conventional approaches to divided cities. The book aims to layer its narratives of architectural and social developments as an urban experience in post-conflict settings over the past two decades.
