Psychogeography is the point where psychology and geography meet in assessing the emotional and behavioural impact of urban space. The relationship between a city and its inhabitants is measured in two ways - firstly through an imaginative and literary response, secondly on foot through walking the city. PG creates a tradition of the writer as walker and has both a literary and a political component.
but some say buildings in towns and cities have been built to tap into a earth energy. these subtle energies of built up places can be manipulated to leave a lasting impresion on its visitors
feng shui
Feng shui is based on the Taoist vision and understanding of nature, particularly on the idea that the land is alive and filled with Chi, or energy.
The ancient Chinese believed that specific land's energy could either make or break the kingdom, so to speak. The theories of yin and yang, as well as the five feng shui elements, are some of the basic aspects of a feng shui analysis that come from Taoism

The art of geomancy was known in ancient Greek and Roman times,
. The main knowledge of geomancy came to Europe via Arabic texts in the
12th century in Spain, and from there spread across Europe. Its origins may be either Persian or Arabic.
so locations where temples churches and places of worship are built are just as important as the buildings
Ancient Romans built their towns using astronomically aligned grids, an Italian study has concluded.
Published recently on the physics Web site maintained at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, the research examined the orientation of virtually all Roman towns in Italy.

"It emerged that these towns were not laid out at random. On the contrary, they were planned following strong symbolic aspects, all linked to astronomy,"

more places built to match astronomy in places around earth
terestrial zodiac,s
and places around earth aligned to planets
but anyone in any built up area can take up psychogeography. all you need is a note pad to make notes as you walk around. a very interesting book and worth a read

If you think I am good on a counterbalance, you need to see me on a reach!
