Border scenery of Kłodzko Land is the theoretical-architectural project, intersecting the relations of border with people and space. It is the passage from interdisciplinary discussion on contemporary borders, to architecturally defined space, in which we all live. The project is an application of designed analytical structure, aiming to grasp, understand, catalogue, and contextualize contemporary bordering processes and socio-spatial relations within a borderscape of Kłodzko Land. As far as the numerous processes, entities and subjects are concerned, the definition and location of contemporary borders situated everywhere and nowhere (Balibar et al. 2002) is complex and complicated. Based on the reviewed literature and emerging key questions, the investigation is divided into three main sections: 1. What is a border? (How does it materialize in architecturally defined space?) Concepts definitions, revealed from reviewed literature is an attempt to name a border with the spatial language, transferable to a material substance. 2. What does a border do? (Who does it concern?) Practices, grasped from the literature and filtered, aim to highlight the actions of a border, and affected entities. The discussion on border’s concepts and practices is simultaneously interrupted by the elaborated fragments – stories, situations, relationships, landscapes - extracted from various areas of Kłodzko Land, set in different timeframes. The fragments appear as the contextualization of selected categories of concepts and practices and complement the theoretical discussion with architecturally defined borderscape. 3. Border scenery of Kłodzko Land The final outcome of the project is the attempt of the articulation of theoretical discussion on border in architecturally defined space. The elements of border scenery of Kłodzko Land, revealed in the methodological process, catalogued, and translated to universal language are contextualized in space (Atlas), set in the graph of relations (Matrix) and eventually juxtaposed (Defragmented space). The analytical structure, designed on a ground of reviewed literature is an integral part of the project and can be replicated and applied in other border sceneries. In contrary, Atlas, Matrix and Defragment space, elaborated in extracted fragments are the peculiar imaginary of Kłodzko Land borderscape, seen through the lens of designed analytical tool.
