The Power of Maps

“I think that if space is deed the “final frontier” then we are all in big trouble-at least in so far as social and political theory go. Perhaps the contemporary shift to metaphors of space as modes of intelligibility is architecture’s triumph-the conquest of dense urban spaces and inhabited building by the principle of open space. It is not clear to me what ‘a new kind of space” Schutz has in mind, because, like architectural space, it seems uninhabited and uninhabitable. I want to ask – where are the people?”
