dc.description.abstract
Urban Design is fundamentally about people. Questions about the role of place in human life are central to the discipline. There even exists a specific theory of urban form, place theory, that is based on the cultural and human characteristics of physical space, that is, on its psychological dimension. It is grounded in the thesis that physical space gains additional richness through unique details that are rooted in its genius loci and use. Place theory embraces the urban realm’s complexity by stating that place is created through the synthesis of different elements rather than by simple manipulation of spatial form. According to this approach, whereas space is a purposeful void with the potential of physically linking things, place is a space with distinct character and with contextual meaning that derives from cultural content. With other words, place theory puts emphasis on urban form‘s social-material relations, that is, on the reciprocal relationship between material space and human activities related to it. This reader introduces the environmentalist discourse regarding cities and takes a journey through different positions concerning the role of place in human life.
