Not all buildings are dwelling

...not every building is a dwelling. Bridges and hangars, stadiums and power stations are buildings but not dwellings; railway stations and highways, dams and market halls are built, but they are not dwelling places.

Even so, these buildigns are in the domain of our dwelling. ...

  • The truck driver is at home on the highway, but he does not have his shelter there;
  • the working woman is at home in the spinning mill, but does not have her dwelling place there;
  • the chief engineer is at home in the power station, but he does not dwell there.


[T]oday's houses may even be well planned, easy to keep, attractively cheap, open to air, light, and sun, but - do the houses in themselves hold any guarantee that dwelling occurs in them?
