This book aims to construct the concept of inbetween
place. The inbetweens are important in architectural
design as transitional realms. Architecture of place
dominates the environmental design as place-making.
However, inbetween domains are not clarified in
significant place-forms for systemic relationships
between nearby places. The book argues that inbetween
places present themselves as living forms of
connectedness, embodied presence, and significant
pauses. By a triangulation from three
standpoints-phenomenological, embodied realism, and
neo-structuralism-through case studies, the essence
of inbetween modes of place is emerged out of
composite presences of: 1) interval containments; 2)
active edges of juxtaposition; and 3) associative
layers with adjacent places. Inbetween places become
critical intermediary domains creating vital and
aesthetic links between neighboring places.
Development of the theory of inbetween place could
enlighten design potentials for spatial shifting,
sequential-making, and presence of embodied layers of
places. This book could benefit architecture students
and lecturers in design and research and designers to
create the whole experience of place.
