  • Turner, David (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    Processes of intensification lead to some unforeseen consequences. One such unplanned consequence is the rearrangement of existing buildings in new or revised spatial patterns. In pursuit of higher densities, large lot ...
  • Murphy, Chris (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
