This book relates spatial existence to the challenges arising from the critical times we are living and from the supposedly degrading moral nature of our societies. It contains contributions from architectural theory and education, urban, spatial and regional studies, as well as cultural landscape studies. The book critically addresses issues in the context of today's major cultural, moral, political, economical, ecological, ideological, and spiritual crises. It provides a focus and a conceptual framework about our most crucial spaces in the light of crises.
