Lamu Island: Genius Loci and Sense of Place.

It is recognised that functions that have apparent similarities take place differently according to cultural and environmental conditions of a
place. Even the basic ones such as eating or sleeping take place differently. Places are similarly distinct. Every experience is linked to place and
our memory of the experience is place- specific. Together, memory and place conjoin to produce much of the context for modern identities.
Providing a modest overview of that critical, dynamic relationship, this study serves as a starting point for the discussions on the ethos and
outstanding universal value of the conserved cities in this country.
The intention of this study is to demystify the concept of the spirit of place and use it to explain place distinctions. It begins by discussing the
key themes and issues related to the concept of spirit of place in the fields of urban morphology and design. The second part then evaluates the
nature and structure of place in Lamu inorder to understand its spirit of place.
