How Travelling Fruit, Ideas and Buildings Rearrange Our Environment

Giovanna Borasi

Exploring the subject of migrations and their impact on the built environment, the publication includes 16 stories written in a narrative form similar to historical fiction. The stories featured highlight key concepts critical to understanding the movement of people, animals, objects and ideas and explore the physical impact of this movement on the built environment. The book brings together different authors, subjects and historical periods in a cohesive way, allowing it to maintain a consistent narrative feel throughout. The authors, experts within their research field, come from various disciplines. Their different backgrounds contribute to the book’s diverse and sometimes even witty content. Each story is accompanied by a specially commissioned illustration. A section in the book is also dedicated to photographs and images that visually represent the themes explored in the stories.
