Notes: "A scientific journey of a designer, following the evolution of Greco-Roman thoughts, through some remarkable Indo-European cities, including those in The Americas, crossing the Turkic and Arabic spheres in their proximity, and abridging to the Japanese capital as introductory exemplar, to reconstruct today's reasoning on public interiors by means of defining types, interrelating people and actions, describing socio-spatial transformations, and comprehending cultural meaning."
