Heidegger reading

I am interested in Heidegger’s distinction between inhabiting a space versus dwelling in it.

I think that Google is an example of a company’s efforts erode the distinction between a place you inhabit versus a place you dwell in. The company provides unique perks (free food, gym memberships, napping stations…) in order to create an office environment that promotes creativity (a commentary on building?).

I have also been watching the “In Residence” videos on Nowness: (https://www.nowness.com/series/in-residence/in-residence-jim-olsen?autoplay)

The architect, Jim Oslen discusses the relationship of the home he built to nature, which is an interesting contemplation on building, dwelling, and the fourfold.
