In recent posts I have mentioned the Norwegian visual artist, Knut Åsdam, whose acclaimed work engages with the notion of heterotopia. His work and writing has encouraged me to look at Dan Graham’s glass/mirror/steel structures and pavilions. In interviews, Dan Graham says that some of his work subverts corporate architecture by ‘creating a kind of heterotopic situation‘.

Following recent mention of David Grahame Shanes’ model of ‘Recombinant Urbanism’, this type of work seems to be exploring, disrupting and undermining ‘enclaves’ as heterotopia.
