ruminations about architecture and design

Monday, April 28, 2014

The utility of space is viewed differently by architects. We assign it a higher value when it is unoccupied--hence the way renderings and photos often exclude entourage. The fact that the design profession makes such a big deal about "space" indicates the level of indoctrination. NASA may own space, but on the planet Earth everything that gets built gets considered and evaluated as an inverted sculpture.

This photograph seems particularly detached from today's blog content, but if we visually edit out the wagon, the people, the tools, and the clutter we have a pure moment of enclosure. A dim room with bright windows at one end. It's hard to do. That wagon is good looking.
