Creating a secure refuge is a fundamental need of humans. In the urbanized environment, the comprehensible hirarchy of landscape has dissolved in favor of a dynamic and intransparent order. While the social cohesion became very specific to each neighborhood, it is still easier for us to relate to physical infrastructures to reason our sense of security. The presence of those infrastructures of security may be preceived both as a prevention from threats, as well as signs of a reaction to an imminent threat. Their nature as objects, placed in an existing situation, make them a medium to interpret the surroundings and the feelings of the neighboring community.
