Fading Borders is a curatorial project that brings to light the complex relationship of migration and the city by presenting two in-depth studies: Away by Teleleu, a journalistic survey of the lives of Romanian migrants within various local European communities; and Shrinking Cities in Romania by Ideilagram, an extensive research on the various forms of decline of Romanian cities, targeting a constructive understanding of the urban shrinkage as a vector for modernisation and innovation. In conclusion, “Mazzocchioo” magazine adds to the debate by gathering a series of contributions from acknowledged architects answering the question How will migration influence architecture and the city?
