The poetics of space

The classic look at how we experience intimate spaces – Gaston Bachelard

Lost notes from this. Key elements nicely summed up in link below:

“At its core, it is a study of what it means to be human. Bachelard utilises physical space and design to understand how people exist in the world and how their surroundings contribute to their relationship to the universe, the collective consciousness, and themselves. Certain design elements evoke strong emotions and reconnect people with deeper parts of themselves. They also return people to a sense of childlike wonder and root them in their own existence.”
