As Ruskin indicates in his Seven Lamps of structure: "We might dwell with no [architecture], and worship with out her, yet we can't have in mind with no her." We be mindful top once we event an occasion in a spot. yet what occurs after we depart that position, or that position now not exists? This e-book addresses the connection among reminiscence and position and asks how structure captures and triggers reminiscence. It explores how structure exists as a fabric item and the way it registers as a spot that we come to recollect past the actual website itself.

It questions what structure is within the broadest feel, assuming that it's not easily constructions. quite, structure is taken into account to be the mapping of actual, psychological or emotional house. the concept we're all architects in a few degree - as we actively manage and choose pathways and markers inside area - is vital to this book's premise. every one bankruptcy offers a special instance of the manifold ways that the actual position of structure is curated by way of the structure in our "mental" house: our imaginary toolbox once we examine a spot and consider a photo, or stopover at a domain and describe it later or ship a postcard.

By connecting structure with different disciplines similar to geography, visible tradition, sociology, and concrete experiences, in addition to the tremendous and appearing arts, this booklet places ahead the concept that a talk approximately structure isn't solely approximately formal, remoted structures, yet as an alternative needs to be deepened and broadened as spatialized visualizations and reviews of place.
