Home and homelessness are the most important archetypes which are used in social science and humanities, psychology and art. In 1957 French phenomenologist Gaston Bachelard explored how homy and happy places are reflected in poetry in his work "Poetry of space". He admits that the image of home represents the topography of human's essence. Homelessness appears to be the opposite of home, a place impossible to integrate into and where joy and happiness are not available. But if these two forms really happen to be the opposite ones?
