Blog Prompt #5

BLOG PROMPT #5: Explore through image and text how the built environment affects (supports or
detracts) who you are. Speculate in terms of frameworks, clockworks, phenomena and
oppositions.

I have noticed that certain types of buildings make me feel different ways. I don't think I've ever come across anything that has been an affront to my personality, or my sense of self, but there are definately things that I don't like. I like Minneapolis a lot more than St. Paul. I think it's the height and modern style of the buildings that appeals to me. The buildings in St. Paul as a rule are more classical in style, and these don't impress me as much as the structures that break the rules, test the limits, you know.

on another note, a building that has influenced me for many years is the church that I've gone to since I was a child. The massive wooden construction is very impressive, and the curvature of the beams and the stained glass windows evoke particular emotions in me of awe and wonder. This building is one that I feel comfortable in, that I enjoy to visit, and holds memories for me.
