Symbolic space by Richard A. Etlin

Etienne-Louis Boullee - nationalbibliothek

CITATION:

“Using Architecture, urbanism, and gardens, Richard A. Etlin identifies different types of symbolic space whose generic features have far-reaching implications not only for architectural history, but also for anthropology, philosophy, critical theory, and cultural studies. In the process Etlin makes crucial distinctions between narrative, expressive, and numinous space. Topics discussed include the Beaux-Arts principles of design, the neo-classical aesthetic in relationship to the sublime, the social and architectural codes of the Rococo hôtel, the landscape garden cemetery, revolutionary space, and the space of absence as it relates to commemorative architecture….”
