Intentional Sitebuilding 7 - Understanding Spaces

Information Architecture works as an organizational tool for website content because it create virtual spaces that, if it's done right, we can understand and navigate through.

So it stands to reason that building a website should involve the envisioning and creation of such spaces so we know where content will be placed. The house building analogy works well here and in this video I exlore this concept and point out that, from this perspective, Drupal's way of creating IA space is, well, pretty much backwards.
