“Although there is a global movement to connect all the world and all cultures electronically in an uninterrupted fusion of space
and time, there is also an inverse tendency of local cultures expressing their wish to belong to one place.”
Holl Steven, “No man’s Land – inapprehensible spaces” in Quaderns No 212, 1997, pp 54 – 62
