How does the built environment affect me?
I find that the oppositions within the built environment fascinate and affect me the most. When discussing each of the oppositions one must use their creativity in a productive way to oppose the opposition. DUH!
Each of the oppositions affect me by making me think… That’s an affect isn’t it? It’s crazy to see a built environment that tackles one of the six oppositions because it makes me question so many aspects of the environment. Who interacts in this built environment? What is the significance of this space? When is this environment utilized? How in the world was this created? Why didn’t I think of that?
I do admit that some frustration occurs as I ask myself the last question, which can create a negative affect.
Anyway, here are some pictures that demonstrate how a built environment evokes each of these questions...
While looking at each of these images I find it fascinating to answer all of the questions stated above. Whether each of the images is real or imaginary, the thought that is provoked by each is what is important. Each of the images gets me to think in a way that the others can't. Each, with its different approach to tackling the oppositions, affects me in a different way. What better way to learn about the built environment?
