This research seeks to understand and define what are called here, unintentional spaces. This research begins by looking into different types of space and spatial intricacies. The intricacies introduced include: representation, perception, value, beauty, and interaction. These initial explorations seek to establish a general understanding and vocabulary for examining unintentional space. Once a basic definition of these spaces is established, this research begins to further define unintentional space through examination of the actions and uses that take place within them. The uses and actions that are discussed include: social escape, alternative housing, adventure and suspense, self expression, and inspiration. The research leads to the discovery and concretization of a key element that epitomizes unintentional spaces, corresponding to the characteristics, actions and uses. This essential element is freedom. The explication of freedom and the relationship with unintentional spaces concludes the exploration.
