In class this week we discussed how where one is in the world can affect architecture and design. The video on how the tides in venice change the waters in the grounds of that building was cool. I also liked how one could tell the season and time I think from how the sun came through a hole in the roof in a church in Italy somewhere. Those ideas of how where you are affect design is really interesting. This idea isn’t used very much to my understanding and I think that it should. One gets a sense that this phenomena could only occur where you are at that time. That is something worth exploring for sure.
