“What, then do we mean with the word “place”? [...]We mean a totality made up of concrete things having material substance, shape, texture and colour. Together these things determine an “environmental character”, which is the essence of place. In general a place is given as such a character or “atmosphere”. A place is therefore a qualitative, “total” phenomenon, which we cannot reduce to any of its properties, such as spatial relationships, without losing its concrete nature out of sight.”
