‘What about architectural spaces, are different kinds of architectural space associated with different emotional states? Bachelard has spoken of topo-analysis, the space of the poetic imagination and the importance of particular kinds of spaces to reverie and day dreaming,
such as stairs, shells, cabinets. Most obviously we have the cave, a place of security and shelter which we can enter and be protected by. But places of refuge can also be prisons if you can’t get out and castles if you can’t get in. And then there are threshold spaces – windows, walls, doors, screens – architectures of the boundary between inside and outside, between inner and outer world.’ 3
