The Non-Space Network is a digital archive that I created when I began capturing images of mundane sites.  Other people then began sending me images with the question attached, “is this a Non-Space?”. I created a series of paradoxical guidelines to classify Non-Spaces for this archive.

To determine if you have found a Non-Space review the following guidelines.


  1. A space of transit. Not a destination.
  2. A place of globalization, not associated to one specific culture.
  3. A Non-Space is a shifting place.
  4. A Non-Space can only be “Non”, if the person in the place is encountering the place temporarily.
  5. A Non-Space is distinct of this era, and as things become historical, their “Non” will diminish, or it will need to be updated/renovated.
  6. Because a Non-Space is always shifting, It might be a categorization of space or even as a metaphorical construct.
  7. They exist as a place of global consumption, rather than as a result of geographical and social condition.
  8. Non-places are easily reproducible.
  9. Non-places are a construct of Super-Modernity. 
  10. Non-Spaces are spaces of anonymity.
  11. Non-Spaces are communal spaces.
  12. Non-Spaces are spaces of waiting.
  13. Once you are aware of a non-place it becomes a Non-Space. If you find yourself examining the architecture, the noise, your body, other bodies in Super Modern spaces, this is a Non-Space.
