Liminal Places. Seven Spatial Stories to Return Home
|Chiara Dorbolò ed.
The spaces we design are intuitively connected with stories – stories we have lived, heard from others, and imagined ourselves. When we write these stories, we implicitly design spaces. Spatial stories can therefore be told or written as much as they can be developed through architectural methods. In this book, 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. In doing so, she touches upon themes ranging from a feminist critique of the architectural profession to the difficult relationship between city and nature.
