The Third Place

Something is being lost with the modern trend towards privatization of home life and our increased dependence on technology to interface with others.  “The third place” is a term coined by Ray Oldenburg to describe the informal public spaces where people congregate outside of home, the “first” places in our lives, and our work places, the “second”.  The third place is a meditation on what community and public spaces mean to us and our current society.  It is a testament to the power of the third place to foster community and balance our private lives but also a reflection of what we are at risk of losing: what Homi K. Bhabha called “the location of culture”.
