Book Title: The Production of Space

Author: Henri Lefebvre

Book Description:

The Production of Space provides the philosophical underpinnings for analyses that investigate the (re)production of social relations through spatial practices. The book provided one of the first claims that space is a social product — not only as a means of production in capitalist society, but also as a tool of thought and action. Its transdisciplinary orientation has provided inspiration for theoretical and methodological innovation in the fields of architecture, planning, and geography.
