LIMINAL PLACES.

SEVEN SPATIAL STORIES TO RETURN HOME

€ 17

pre-order

EXPECTED RELEASE MID FEBRUARY

 

The spaces we design are intuitively connected with stories. Stories we have lived, have heard from others, and have imagined ourselves. When we write these stories, we implicitly design spaces. Spatial stories are therefore stories that can simultaneously be told or written as much as they can be developed through architectural methods. Touching upon themes ranging from feminist critique of the architectural profession, to the controversial relationship between city and nature, to the constraining power of domestic space, in Seven Spatial Stories to Return Home architect and writer Chiara Dorbolò explores the state of transition of liminal places as a universal metaphor for personal life, making explicit the different roles physical space plays in the human experience of the world.
