The third realm of luxury: connecting real places and imaginary spaces

The third realm of luxury: connecting real places and imaginary spaces
The third realm of luxury: connecting real places and imaginary spaces
We live increasingly in the third realm of luxury. The very idea of the real, how we make sense of place, the means by which we imagine, are all becoming invested in, and developed through, the third realm of luxury. The rapidly developing real–imaginary spaces of luxury are thus becoming a key area for studying the issues associated with luxury. Hence, adopting a critical luxury studies perspective (Armitage and Roberts, 2016), The Third Realm of Luxury: Connecting Real Places and Imaginary Spaces provides an original and significant investigation of the most important developments in the theories and practices of luxurious real places and imaginary spaces over the last fifty years. In doing so, it draws on issues and concepts from philosophy, visual culture, design history, sociology, literary theory, architecture, cultural anthropology, cultural geography, and critical luxury studies.

Abstract

We live increasingly in the third realm of luxury. The very idea of the real, how we make sense of place, the means by which we imagine, are all becoming invested in, and developed through, the third realm of luxury. The rapidly developing real–imaginary spaces of luxury are thus becoming a key area for studying the issues associated with luxury. Hence, adopting a critical luxury studies perspective (Armitage and Roberts, 2016), The Third Realm of Luxury: Connecting Real Places and Imaginary Spaces provides an original and significant investigation of the most important developments in the theories and practices of luxurious real places and imaginary spaces over the last fifty years. In doing so, it draws on issues and concepts from philosophy, visual culture, design history, sociology, literary theory, architecture, cultural anthropology, cultural geography, and critical luxury studies.
