Elements of place

23:30 § Leave a comment

Elements of place can be described as the arrangements of events that occur in places. Events are the result of interactions between people and place. The elements of place can be part of the event,  the internal direction, enclosure, internal area or entrances.
In this diagram we describe the different elements of place:
  • Internal area (2)
  • An enclosure (5)
  • Centrality (1)
  • Direction of Activity (3 and 4)
  • Entrances (6)

Below we can see an illustrative comparison of the structure of different places. The model with components of place, the elements interposed over St. Peter’s Square, Vatican, and over a meeting in a park.
