Architecture and Order - Approaches to Social Space

Architecture and Order - Approaches to Social Space
M. Pearson | Routledge | 1997-05-14 | ISBN: 0415157439 | Pages: 264 | PDF | 5.10 MB


Architecture is a powerful medium for representing, ordering and classifying the world; understanding the use of space is fundamental to archaeological inquiry. Architecture and Order draws on the work of archaeologists, social theorists and architects to explore the way in which people relate to the architecture which surrounds them. The contributors discuss the development of an archaeological language used to describe architecture's symbolic use of space and to further define the discipline's interaction with not only architecture but also anthropology. Topics discussed include Neolithic houses and tombs; perceptions of architecture, space and time; defining domestic space in the bronze age; women in Greek households; the Roman domestic setting; Swahili architecture; and spatial order and psychiatric disorder.
