>I'm doing a fouth year thesis project in interior design and have chosen to base the abstract concept for my thesis on the theories of Buber. Specifically his views on dialogue and encounters. I plan to take these theories and translate them into a spatial solution for an interior environment. I was just curious if they has been any work done of this kind in the past. Any

suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Beverley

You are probably familiar with the work of Erving Goffman the American sociologist who explored encounter and the nature of public and private domains.
If not try his The Presentation of self;Encounters;Asylums etc.

I was also knocked out by a paper by Steinbock on The Other written as an examination of images of the Homeless (writing from work and do not have the full reference here).

I am engaged on postgrad work on the subjective experience of the Home......have you any interesting reading sources?

best wishes
