Summary and Info
Architecture is a powerful medium for representing, ordering and classifying the world; meaning may be created and reworked by defining symbolic boundaries, analogues and metaphors. For over a decade archaeologists have been using concepts of the symbolic use of space. Contributions to "Architecture and Order" range from studies of hunter-gatherer camp organization to the use of space in classical and medieval worlds. As well as archaeological case studies, there are contributions exploring aspects of anthropological, social, psychiatric and architectural theory.
