Architecture and legislation describe the spaces of the city, and the activities they contain. ‘Security’ can dislodge this public space. This is especially true during gatherings of global leaders within major cities. The threat of terrorism and the temporary nature of these events tend to excuse authoritarian treatment of public space. The Toronto G20 summit of June 2010 is a model for the dynamic between resistance and control, the unmediated relationship between these two forces, and the resulting change in freedom and movement in the modern city.
