Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0934951179, Paperback)Buildings are inert objects, but our experience of them transcends the physical realm and extends into our deepest consciousness. Architecture, in particular, which moves beyond mere building, strives to enhance the human condition and promote emotional well-being through the manipulation of space, light, material, and form. Psychoanalysis is concerned with many things, among them, the means by which places enter our psyches and become a part of who we are. Both psychoanalysts and architects care about people's identities and memories, hopes and dreams. These human constructs are replete with spatial, architectural images, images of safety, danger, permanence, enclosure, and reflection, as well as with a full range of emotions. Within the overlap of psychoanalytic and architectural discourses lies the emotional tonus of real and imagined places, whether at the scale of the city or the scale of the house, and it is this area of mutual concern that inspired the current volume of CENTER.
