The epilogue emphasizes how people use their spatial environments in creating social interaction and uplifting the sense of belongingness. To illustrate the purpose of this book, the chapter cited Do HoSuh’s 1999 installation; wherein Suh, inspired by his longing for his family home, creates a replica of a Korean domestic structure for him to experience familiar living spaces. The structures inspired by contemporary art and architecture such as with Suh represent the need for the resolution of the issues of home for a profound experience of the spaces we occupy in the world.

Keywords:   spatial environments, social interaction, belongingness, Do HoSuh, domestic structure
