Abstract

What Heidegger means by ‘dwelling’ in his lecture 'Building Dwelling Thinking' is closely linked to one of his most difficult to interpret ideas – that of 'the fourfold', or das Geviert, comprising ‘earth’, ‘sky’, ‘mortals’ and ‘gods'. But perhaps one of the most peculiar characteristics of an already peculiar concept is that, while the fourfold remains difficult and obscure in a philosophical context, it seems, at first sight at least, to be easily interpretable in an architectural one. Taking this as a starting point this paper explores an interpretation of dwelling in terms of the third term of Heidegger's paper 'thinking' relating this to the ideas of Gregory Bateson and to a recent installation by Permanent Waver.
