The Spaces That Shape Us
God made humans to not merely interact with creation, but to add to it. Architects dream and design the structures and spaces we inhabit, and when we pay attention to the built environment around us, we recognize how every space we interact with shapes us at a very deep level. Our culture often places beauty in an optional, “aesthetics” category rather than seeing it as a functional, necessary part of both our civic and our internal life. In this conversation, led by architect Will LoPatriello, we discussed how to become aware of the spaces we inhabit and how we can practice observing and interacting with the built environment around us.
