Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Collector discusses the front porch as a unique space, a liminal, threshold space, betwixt and between the house and the street. She proposes that a porch gives a person a sense of social interaction with his/her community while still remaining at home. Included are 22 slides of 11 front porches in Eugene, interviews with the people who lived there and a summary of each interaction.
