Enframes challenges topology with mereology. Refraining the famous statement that a city is not a tree, the project Enframes considers the city as a quantity of corners. The corner as the bumping into each other, the city as the physical enframing of exchange. The corner is interpreted as a coincidental meeting point mbracing places and enclosing crossings. In the footsteps of O.M. Ungers space-concept of enframing, the project accelerates the urban coincident, condensing the topological measure of cityness into a configuration of partial frames.
