In this paper the spatial dimensions of political practice and the historical dimensions of architectural practice are examined. The author argues that these two practices intersect when, in the life of a city and a nation, time is transformed into space. The productivity of death in this regard is explored. In developing this argument, reference is made to the works and writings of Regis Debray and Aldo Rossi, as well as events in the recent political history of South Africa.
