Before you run to get some Advil, hear me out. The gist of this discussion is that the mind works by bringing together ideas from many different sources. A "bricoleur" (one who makes bricolage) is what you may call a "tinkerer" or an "artisan." So this bricoleur conducts manual labor, drawing upon the materials at his disposal—you know, plastic parts or twigs, mold cavities or pebbles.

Whatever the materials, the bricoleur is a manufacturer, working on the "technical plane". Then you have the engineer or designer who works on the "intellectual plane." The tinkerer is more closely associated with "the savage mind," and is just more of a simple, hands-on person.

Which are, which will the successful social places be; how to detect them, with which criteria; which time, which daily living rhythms inscribe, describe, prescribe at these spaces "successful", that is to say, favourable to happiness

This is what interests us.

The production of space
