Deborah Tall

  • Home is where we know — and are known — through accumulated experience.

    • "Dwelling: Making Peace With Space and Place," in Orion ()
  • The notion of place in which one owns and cares for a plot of land still exerts enormous influence on contemporary Americans. The extent and condition of our property, and our choice of style in dwelling, create a powerful emblem of our identity and status.

  • As a national ideal carried to an extreme, though, mobility has created the circumstances for widespread fragmentation and damage. The avoidance of ties to a place, ties which take years to build, removes constraints, allows us to be indifferent to our towns and cities, to ignore their plights, to say but this isn't mine.
