The building of the Eurode Business Centre—located on the border that runs through the middle of the Aachener Straße, creates a clear ‘end’ to the street. Of course this is not the first dead end street we have ever encountered – but this street emphasizes access, linking, passage, but at this particular location, actually does the opposite. The last part of the border street has been erased, if you will, by an obstacle. This is where the street ends – or begins. In a border street—where the focus generally lies on a comparison between two ‘sides’—it, moreover, creates a ‘front and back’. This also turns the street into a delimited phenomenon – a rectangle that, in some ways, is clearly distinguishable from the two towns it ‘links’.
