The notion of place is fundamental to Heidegger’s philosophy and facilitates a critical inquiry into our Being in the world by thinking together Being, place, and time. As attuned to place, we can live our hermeneutic existence in radical responsivity to Being.
Recent philosophical research (Jeff Malpas, Günter Figal) emphasizes the centrality of place in Martin Heidegger’s thinking. Understanding ourselves as being situated in the world in our thrownneess (Geworfenheit), we discover our relationship to Being. Being thrown into a special concrete environment, we search for an authentic mode of Being in the world. Our explicit engagement with place and spatiality is one of the decisive aspects of the hermeneutics of facticity (Hermeneutik der Faktizität). Being, place, and time are inextricably bound together.
Instead of understanding buildings as architectural products, we would like to encourage thinking about buildings as places for coming together of people wising to experience their belonging together (Mitsein) in their liberating/captivating relationship to Being. Thus, a building has the potential of being a meeting place (occurrere- to meet) and can decisively contribute to the culture of dialogue.
