A note on the title

This blog takes as its title a revision of Le Corbusier's dictum of a house as 'a machine for living' (Towards a New Architecture, 1931), but instead of being informed by purely functional requirements, acknowledges the need for something more 'spatial'.

Thankfully, its a bit of a stinker, so we're unlikely to be mistaken with it.
