I am currently condusting a study on the perception of space, and the creation, or rather promotion of a sense of place.

What is conducive to a 'sense of place'
Should the International Modernist Style be regarded as an obserd ideaology that only promotes a globalised architecture without identity?

If architecture is the product of Comfort, Functionality and Delight - how important is the 'delight' element in todays architecture ?

Thanx for any contribution

P.S. i am basically trying to get a discussion started to help me in my dissertation effort. Any literature references are greatly appreciated - Thank you.
