64 65 Robert Venturi had taught city In his urban-design classic, Learning from Las Vegas, planners the significance of the urban ugly, not as a quality to be subjected to acceptance or rejection, but as an urban feature from which one can learn to produce a successful city-form. Venturi’s observations of Las Vegas are mainly those of an automobile driver. In similar vein Sartre’s Nausea should be seen as a secular guide to walking.

Hillier, 2007:65) Fluidity and flows in the social science literature are primarily used as metaphors. ” Such fluid notions are necessary to capture the multiple transformations of collective representations in which “collective relations are no longer societal and structural” (Urry, 2003: 59). Another body of literature is that of Appadurai and others who argue for the metaphors of flow, uncertainty, and chaos (1996). Deleuxe and Guattari use the term “bodies in a vortex” (1986). White characterize the social world as being constituted of disorderly and sticky “gels and goos” (1992).

Border-zones (the area on both sides of a national border) are spaces in which cultural identities are blurred. Some borders are fluid, multiple, intersecting, and not fixed (Aure, 2011: 174), while others are highly controlled and regulated.
