In building little houses I am searching for the connections; the reasons. The why? and what they represent. This passage is a start, but I don’t think it’s the all.
“And since, in all research concerning the imagination, we must leave the realm of facts behind, we know perfectly that we feel calmer and more confident when in the old home, in the house we were born in, than we do in the houses on streets where we have only lived as transients.”
Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space, 1958. P.43, house and universe.
