dc.description.abstractThe theories of liminality, urban mobility, critical geography and spatialized critical theory are analyzed through a phenomenological enquiry attempting to understand the way people perceive place as they move and transform through space and time. The concept of using movement as in informer for design has not been adequately employed in contemporary society, resulting in movement through spaces not being sustainable. Therefore, the infrastructure facilitating this movement does not respond in a dynamic and flexible way, resulting in harsh boundaries, discontinued urban node patterns and, most imperative to the discussion, marginalization on a global scale. Isipingo is one of many marginalized communities in South Africa, also considered a third space of resistance. Development, however, is focused on efficiency of freight transportation rather than enhancing the vibrancy and dynamics of multifarious networks that have had the opportunity to develop organically and spontaneously, forming a ‘melting pot of cultures,’ (Makhathini, 2011). These imperative survival networks can be enhanced through infrastructure which allows for choice, giving people the freedom to transform through space and time. Transient architecture, informed by movement and connections between people, can then adapt as these motions change over time, accepting a multiplicity of cultures and dynamics in a space simultaneously.en_US
