the true spirit of places

April 19, 2012

“According to Olds ‘the true spirit of places resides not only in their physical parameters, but also in the symbolic meanings that grow up around them as a result of the history, participation, and belonging of the people who use them’ (2000, 25).”

Quoted in: p.203 Margaret Kernan (2010) ‘Space and place as a source of belonging and participation in urban environments: considering the role of early childhood education and care settings’ European Early Childhood Education Research Journal 18(2): 199-213

Referring to: Olds, A.R. 2000. Childcare design guide. New York: McGraw-Hill.
