Gaylord present

  1. 1. The Gaylord Texan as Heterotopic Space by Wendy Strain Powerpoint Templates Page 1
  2. 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

  5. 5. Entrance to HeterotopiaHeterotopia always presupposes a system of opening and closing, which bothisolates it and makes it penetrable. A heterotopia is not accessible for everybodyas a public space, but rather poses certain criteria. Powerpoint Templates Page 5

  7. 7. Blending RealitiesHeterotopia is capable of juxtaposing in a single realspace several spaces, several sites that are inthemselves incompatible• Alamo stands on an • Hill Country to Northwest empty, flat plain • Rolling hills, more fertile,• Desert sandstone cliffs • Areas are blended – Riverwalk winds through them all Powerpoint Templates Page 7
  8. 8. Hegemonic Function A heterotopia can change its function because of changes in the society that occur over time. Any heterotopia has a specific function with regard to the society to which it is related. Overseeing eye Tiny TownPowerpoint Templates Page 8
  9. 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.

What does this mean?Architectural design has strong but modifiableeffects on social behavior and users’ mood andproductivity and, to some extent, design featuresalso affect health and well-being. ~Ayers 2007What happens to truth when the places andspaces around us, such as the Gaylord Texan,are heterotopia rather than real?
