The chapters included in this section invite reflections and pave the road for discussing various notions of borders and boundaries as they manifest in architecture, urbanism, and the overall built environment of contemporary societies. In essence, they address key issues present themselves as manifestations of borders and boundaries as debated in the five chapters. They range from separation and conflict to formal and informal built environments and from continuity and fragmentation to evolution and transformations. The complexity of the issues raised in the chapters requires framing through transdisciplinary frameworks that aim to cross the boundaries of disciplines while blurring the physical and conceptual borders of these issues. Such a framing can be captured through two frameworks (Salama, 2019). The first deals with the conception and production of space and the second aims to understand housing patterns, typologies and choices from the perspective of contemporary lifestyles.
