PY - Y1 - N2 - We spend more and more of our everyday lives in what Marc Augé calls non-places – homogenous, but bland places of transit.   A non-place is anywhere that people aren’t going to linger—either it’s devoted to getting them from place to place, storing their vehicles, or it’s the filler in the landscape between our places. Examples of non-places are vehicle lanes, parking lots, freeways, as well as medians, retention ponds and all other sorts of landscaped.

    This book presents a critical and aesthetic defence of "non-place" as an act of cultural reclamation. Ultimately, it argues that the non-place has the potential to reveal a version of England that raises questions about identity, loss, memory, landscape valorisation, and, perhaps most importantly, how we are to arrive at a more meaningful place. The book explores the distinction between "place", encrusted with historical meaning and creative of social life, and "non-place", to which individuals are connected in a uniform, bureaucratic manner and where no organic social life is possible.

Marc Augé’s Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity is fascinating. His book is useful because it offers a theoretical framework for understanding why we think of some places the way we do, in particular there is a description of places that can put us in contact with a social structure, because there is a very close, consubstantial link between space and social /5.

The (TITLE) NON-PLACE is a book based on the theory of non-places which was coined by the French anthropologist, Marc Augé. The idea behind the book was that place and non-place are co-existing—there isn't a space that can be coined just a 'place' or a 'non-place'.
