The Mediating Role of the Built Environment in Family Consumption Practices

We examine how the built environment mediates family life, and particularly relational identities within the family. We conceptualize the relationship between two main dimensions: spaces (firstly for wandering e.g. consumptionscapes; and secondly, for enclosing e.g. domestic places); and relational identities (firstly, maintaining the status quo and secondly, changing identities).
