The Poetics Of Space

Gaston Bachelard

book

1958

This book, some fifty years after its publication, is still regarded as one of the most important meditations on  the phenomenology of Architecture. The author broke with traditional ideals stressing from and appearance to focus on the experience of spaces. He strove to understand and propose a built environment as a refuge and repository for our dreams and memories.

Structure

One of the most quoted writers in his field, Bachelard's thoughts, while arising from an analysis of the world of architecture, have influenced thinking across numerous disciplines from cinema to psychoanalysis. He observed intimate behavioural trends which when stated seem entirely self evident yet they eluded all his contemporaries.
