    Abstract:
    This paper examines two documentary essays focusing on landmark architecture in the transnational Øresund region comprising Copenhagen and Malmö. I argue that the motif of construction and deconstruction is congruous to our understanding of the ways identities are negotiated vis-à-vis spatial experience. In the lms, the multiple trajectories of characters of diverse nationalities and cultures are woven into the (de)construction of the landmark structures, producing a visual space that interrogates what ‘identity’ means in an increasingly networked and global world.
