Abstract: When it’s hot, we find a shady tree to sit under; when it’s cold, we find a windbreak and build a fire; and if there’s danger, we find a safe protected place. This is what people have always done; we’re just a little more sophisticated in the twenty-first century. It’s still about function and amenity of the shelter: function – the requirements of utility and economy, efficiency in construction of a serviceable building for the needs of production and profit. Architecture is the consequence of human interactions and lies on the realm of memory and the experienced. Architecture has the power to comfort and to inspire, and through the intimacy of places and moments lived, there is a blurred line between the built and natural environment – dream and reality – time and space. Every creative endeavour is woven from and relative to the processes that influence the way we experience the world, and mostly it’s the little unnoticeable things that create sweeping change.
