This study focuses on the concept of non-place, embodiment of this notion and subjectivity of it depending on the user. A literature review on social and conceptual factors which prepared the rise of non-place will be followed by concrete examples of non-place generated through control mechanisms. The formation of non-places and the position of the individual existing in them will be examined. Afterwards various interpretations on the notion of non-place will be discussed. Finally the individual perceptions and the counteractions against the control mechanisms of non-place; and also the dynamics affecting the individuals tendency to convert non-place into place will be brought into question. The inevitable existence of control mechanisms in non-place and the effects of this situation on the semantic sustainability of the concept will be presented along with the slippery ground between place and non-place in which the role of the user is the determinant force.
