Charles Morris and Christian Norberg-Schulz: The Social Basis of Meaning in Architecture

  • William Widdowson


The title of these sessions on architectural meaning could have been given by George Herbert Mead. The intellectual life of Mead was devoted to describing the social foundations of the many dimensions of human life, especially such notions as mind and self. Had he turned his attention to architectural meaning, social foundations would have been his point of departure.
