The Sociology of Space : Materiality, Social Structures, and Action Hardback
by Martina Low
Part of the Cultural Sociology series
In this book, the author develops a relational concept of space that encompasses social structure, the material world of objects and bodies, and the symbolic dimension of the social world.
Low's guiding principle is the assumption that space emerges in the interplay between objects, structures and actions.
Based on a critical discussion of classic theories of space, Low develops a new dynamic theory of space that accounts for the relational context in which space is constituted.
This innovative view on the interdependency of material, social, and symbolic dimensions of space also permits a new perspective on architecture and urban development.
