An analysis of Virginia Woolf’s novel, Mrs Dalloway, which explores the role of architecture in a society divided along lines of class, gender and sanity in 1920s London. The three scales of The City, The House, and The Window illustrate how the physical structures of streets, parks, rooms and objects can contribute to, reinforce, or interfere with social structures and hierarchies.
