The concluding chapter exposes the problematic nature of surveillance culture shored up in architectural frames and through the built environment. Drawing on the environment narratives of surveillance to a point of conclusion, where the blurring of public and private, interior and exterior can be elucidated, the conclusion progresses the collection’s focus from the examples contained here, to a more global and overarching analysis, drawing on the issues at the heart of this study—the impact of being viewed—on human categories.
