Abstract

The intent of this thesis is to study a community in terms of how its inhabitants interact through space, and the effect of various physical structures on the interaction of the individual and the group. -- The study is divided into three separate sections, depending on the area of interaction. These are: the house as a spatial system, community-wide patterns, and inter-community pathways. Aural and visual concerns, as well as cultural patterns, are taken into account. -- The aspects of a cultural spatial situation which are covered in this study are: -- House location -- Areas of interaction within the house itself -- Cultural correlates of spatial constructions -- Visiting patterns -- Community public places and their respective characteristics for interaction on a community scale. -- Community attitudes toward others -- Physical and attitudinal factors of isolation -- Sexual differentiation based upon spatial usage and knowledge. -- The community in this work is analyzed in spatial terms.
