This thesis is an attempt to examine the construction of “physical” and “dream” spaces through things/objects of daily life belonging to the past and the present. As an interdisciplinary study, it focuses on Things by Georges Perec (1965) and The Museum of Innocence (novel/2008), The Museum of Innocence (museum/2012) and The Innocence of Objects (catalogue of the museum/2012) by Orhan Pamuk and looks comparatively into the dynamics between “physical” and “dream” spaces in these works, and the roles played by things/objects in the architectural/literary production of spaces. Accordingly, it argues that while Perec scrutinizes things/objects in relation to the concept of desire, Pamuk explores their power of evoking memories.
