Is it possible, while maintaining the momentum of Pierre Nora’ studies on Sites of Memory (Les lieux de mémoire, 1984-87), or Christian Jacob’s current researches on Places of Knowledge (Lieux de savoirs, 2007-2011), to consider particular public places – museums, libraries, theatre, the list is endless – as sites dedicated to the process of thinking, as places where one thinks? To what extent, in which ways, and for what purpose might institutions and places strive for stimulating, elaborating, shaping a thinking process? What kind of institutional, architectural, or design devices would such a dedication to the thinking process involve? What professional or artistic issues, limitations, resources, would this impact?
