Heterotopia
Hi all,

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.

Heterotopia
Dear Farhad,

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.

Heterotopia
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.
