The Power Of Place

Each place has its own unique quality. We all know this, but little is understood about why places are special. In this anthology, 26 presentations are drawn from the five year Spirit of Place symposium series held in the US and Japan between 1988 and 1993, yielding many important perspectives on the power of place.
