In contemporary usage, genius loci usually refers to a location's distinctive atmosphere, or a "spirit of place...has Edward Relph wrote:
“Genius loci cannot be designed to order. It has to evolve, to be allowed to hapen, to grow and change from the direct efforts of those who live and work in places and care about them...No matter how sophisticated technical knowledge may be, the understanding of others' lives and problems will always be partial. Just as outsiders cannot feel their pain, so they cannot experience their sense of place. I believe, therefore, that it is impossible to make complete places in which other poeple can live. And, in a world dominated by international economic processes and global telecommunications, there can be no return to an environment of integrated and distinctive places.”
By this means I will try to depict the twisted view of the cities built environment, shifted / distorted in their own reality.
