Book Title: The Poetics of Space

Author: Gaston Bachelard

Book Description:

My well-worn copy of The Poetics of Space dates from my graduate school days — although I was first exposed to the book as an undergraduate art student, and I have constantly returned to Bachelard's essays on the psychological aspects of architectural space.  His writing and ideas opened my mind to the poetic worlds contained in interior spaces, particularly domestic ones, and these ideas have formed the underpinnings of much of my artistic work.
