Thesis Primer

LANELLI: ‘PLACE’ & EMBEDDED MEMORY

As a starting point for my primer I began to look into the theory of ‘place’ and place-making. One area I found particularly interesting is the idea of embedded memory, information encoded in the physical fabric of the city and the effect this accumulation and aggregation of temporal remnants has in creating identity.

‘Place’ by definition requires inhabitation, and the requirements for inhabitation are fluid and dynamic. A responsive urban environment is constantly evolving to meet changing requirements, but urbanity requires echoes of the past, contained within the architectural fabric to provide the seeds for meaningful places.
