In the book, boundaries and inaccessible spaces and even beyond spaces – cemeteries and film – are addressed, not only by urbanists, but also by artists and historians, and present this situation of the city to experience in many different areas. The book also introduces a new term for urbanism: The Immured Space (spaces that force us out of our control).
