- Marc Augé -- Criticism and interpretation,
- Place (Philosophy),
- Modernism (Aesthetics)
AbstractThis essay uses the work of Marc Augé as a lens through which to view the supermodern urban space, and how the concept of place is manufactured and negotiated. The author focuses on a car park to elucidate these themes, and agrees with Augé, who claims that non-places such as car parks fail to create identity or relations.
