    Repeatable formulas and spatial products make most of the space in the world now; not only buildings but also entire cities have become spatial products that typically reproduce free zone world cities like Shenzhen or Dubai. Space has become a mobile, monetized, almost infrastructural, technology, where infrastructure is not only the urban substructure, but also the urban structure itself.

    Keller Easterling is an architect, writer, and professor at Yale University.

    mit PRESS: in enduring innocence, keller EASTERLING tells the stories of outlaw “spatial products”—resorts, information technology campuses, retail chains, golf courses, ports, and other hybrid spaces that exist outside normal constituencies and jurisdictions, in difficult political situations around the world. these spaces—familiar commercial formulas of retail, business, and trade—aspire to be worlds unto themselves, self-reflexive and innocent of politics. but as easterling shows, these enclaves can become political pawns and objects of contention. jurisdictionally ambiguous, they are imbued with myths, desires, and symbolic capital. their hilarious and dangerous masquerades often mix quite easily with the cunning of political platforms. easterling argues that the study of such “real estate cocktails” provides vivid evidence of the market’s weakness, resilience, or violence.
