  • 1. The Gaylord Texan as Heterotopic Space by Wendy Strain Powerpoint Templates Page 1
  • 2. Heterotopic SpaceHeterotopia are « real places – places that do exist andthat are formed in the very founding of society – whichare something like counter-sites, a kind of effectivelyenacted utopia in which the real sites, all the other realsites that can be found within the culture, aresimultaneously represented, contested and inverted …[they are] outside of all places, even though it may bepossible to indicate their location in reality. » ~Michel Foucault Powerpoint Templates Page 2
  • 3. Mirrors provideexcellent examples ofa heterotopic space.Foucault says allsocieties constituteheterotopias. Powerpoint Templates Page 3

  • 9. Heterotopic Order• Heterotopia always have a function in relation to all the places/spaces that remains outside. Either in terms of creating an illusional space and reveals the ‘real’ spaces as built on illusion, or by creating a space that is another real space – which is just as perfect as our places are messy and disjointed.
