“Whilst in contact our distance remains. We may construct this space, we may see it, read it, hear it. We may traverse it, interact with it and with one another across it, but we cannot be in it. 'Here' is not where I physically am at any given moment, but rather 'here' is only what I am looking at, reading, hearing. There is no shared space here, only the shared vista.”

— Richard Sennett


“... this library for our ears.”

— Charles Olson (1910-1970)

— Ralph Lichtensteiger


place (n.): “open space in a city, market place, square,” from O.Fr. place, from M.L. placea “place, spot,” from L. platea “courtyard, open space, broad street,” from Gk. plateia (hodos) “broad (way),” fem. of platys “broad,” from PIE *plat- “spread out, broad, flat” (cf. Skt. prathati “spreads out;” Gk. pelanos “sacrificial cake;” Hitt. palhi “broad;” Lith. platus “broad,” plonas “thin;” Ger. Fladen “flat cake;” O.Ir. lethan “broad”). Replaced O.E. stow and stede. Wide application in Eng., covering meanings that in Fr. require three words: place, lieu, and endroit. Cognate It. piazza and Sp. plaza retain more of the etymological sense. Broad sense of “material space, dimension of defined or indefinite extent” is from c.1250. Sense of “position on some social scale” is from c.1325. Meaning “group of houses in a town” is from 1585. Place-kick is from 1845, originally in rugby. Placement is first attested 1844. All over the place “in disorder” is attested from 1923
