I'm studying M. Foucault's notion of "Heterotopia", looking for some brilliant papers and essays to translate them into my native language-Persian. I've been aware of a good one by Henry Urbach: "Writing Architectural Heterotopia" published in the Journal of Architecture (by Routledge press), vol 3, (Winter 1998): pp 347-354.
Since I couldn't find a full text of it on the web, I would be thankful if anyone could send me a full-text of this paper. Thanks and best wishes.

The Heterotopia is a very interesting concept that has been much used and abused by architectural theoreticians. Its fashion appears to have passed now. Anyhow... I've found the article and sent it to your e-mail in pdf format. Good luck.

There is a collection of essays in a book called 'Heterotopia : Postmodern Utopia and the Body Politic' Edited by Tobin Anthony Siebers The book focuses more on what the idea of utopia might mean in the postmodern condition, and less on the liminal conditions that I think Foucault focuses on. If you can get a copy from a library, might be worth browsing.
There is a conference and a call for papers under the headline of heterotopia :
THE RISE OF THE HETEROTOPIA. ON PUBLIC SPACE AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE EVERYDAY IN A POST-CIVIL SOCIETY LEUVEN, BELGIUM, 26-28 MAY 2005
