The review addresses the question of the relevance of using psychoanalysis in analysing works of architecture. The review also argues that the authors of Nature and Space did not, wrongly, defined, how they used the main concept, e.g. the word "nature". Is is not problematized because the Le Corbusier's and Aalto's early experiences in nature are seen as justification to use the concept and apply psychoanalytical approach and development theory to the lives and work of both men. In spite of these blind spots in the argumentation, the book shows, the boarder and deeper the architectural artefacts are, the boarder range of forms of analysis they allow or ask for.
