This brief essay articulates the dialectic relation between persons as psychophysical beings and architecture as a physical-cultural environment. The essay argues that architecture should not be solely based on the formal qualities of space but should also take account of, and make room for the heterogeneity of personal and cultural experiences that adapt to and accommodate the physical dimension of architecture. Concepts such as proximal space, as defined by E. T. Hall, become all the more important in conceptualizing such a dialectic relation.
