The difficulty in relating architecture to place lies in the necessity to respond comprehensively to place in spite of the fact that the nature of place is never completely apparent to the observer. There exist certain qualities just outside of human perception. These qualities are obscured from being understood because of our relationship to--and the complexity of--the physical world. Through the abstraction of mapping and other modes of representation these qualities can be revealed. Moreover, an understanding of these qualities provides opportunities to respond more comprehensively to place in an architectural work. I call these latent qualities of place.
