How often we look at architecture as just an object of visual delight and forgetting the fact that architecture is as much of an emotional or a psychological experience as it is a visual one. Two rooms of similar size will feel different if the spaces contained within the four walls are treated differently. Think of one room that is naturally lit while the other is lit by artificial light. What mood does each room create?

Quote of the day

Once you learn to look at architecture not merely as an art more or less well or more or less badly done, but as a social manifestation, the critical eye becomes clairvoyant

~ Louis Sullivan, American architect
