Species of Nooks and Other Niches explores, simultaneously, the architecture of nooks and nooks in architecture, examining nooks as spaces which conceal against nakes as spaces which reveal. Citing architectural, phenomenological, philosophical, literary, poetic, and cinematic examples, this study excavates and defends the capacity of the hidden, the compressed and the complex in a world where rules of transparency, efficiency and simplicity threaten to become tyrannies tending towards architectural reductionism.
