French anthropologist.

In an essay and book of the same title, "Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity" (1995), Marc Augé coined the phrase "non-place" to refer to anthropological spaces of transience that do not hold enough significance to be regarded as "places". Examples of a non-place would be a motorway, a hotel room, an airport or a supermarket.
