“Occupation: Boundary: Art, Architecture, and Culture at the Water” by Cathy Simon MArch ’69, released by ORO Editions
ORO Editions has released Occupation: Boundary: Art, Architecture, and Culture at the Water by Cathy Simon, MArch ’69. This book examines the social, political, and cultural factors that have and continue to influence the evolution of the urban waterfront as seen through production created from art and design practices. Reaching beyond the disciplines of architecture and urban design, Occupation: Boundary distills the dual roles art and culture have played in relation to the urban waterfront, as mediums that have recorded and instigated change at the threshold between the city and the sea.
