Pieces of Time and Perception of Place — From the view of Genius Loci and Contextualism

Abstract [en]

The thesis discusses how to make a harmonious place with nature, keeping the spirit of place which we call “Genius Loci”, and using phenomenological analysis to understand the meaning of place through its structure. Symbolization and concretion are also discussed as they are used to transform natural landscape to architecture, and orientation and identification are used to prove the existence. This thesis also connects place to man’s image with social and cultural aspects, and seeks a way to keep continuity in history. Therefore a humanistic place should have agreements with essence of place, human demand, and historic continuity.
