Heterotopias vs. Utopia 

"The architecture that intervenes between us and the exercise of power is our real adversary...
But who erects this obstacle, who creates this distance? No one does...
The obstacle is an ambiguous one, for it is a matter of fashioning a world we cannot escape from as much as one we may not enter.
These two self-opposing impossibilities are identical in fact...
What matters is the separation...
This space will, therefore, always remain sealed off yet at the same time periously exposed...
Its edifices, like strange organisms, are threateningly proliferous."

Jean Starobinski, em "The Illusion of Architecture"
