Instead of providing geographical information about places around the world, Places/Ideas pursues the less familiar, but perhaps more important, they explore the intriguing and meaningful ideas they gave rise to.

More details

The history of ideas is chiefly told to us through books. We therefore forget that the world’s big ideas were also hatched in particular places: Virginia Woolf thought up the idea of a ‘room of her own’ in her study in Sussex (which had a window overlooking a delightful rose garden), Marcel Proust thought up his theories on travel in the Gare du Nord in Paris, Edward Hopper discovered modern loneliness in a particular American diner… Here is a guide to some big ideas and the places they were ‘born’ in.
