What do you look for in a community? Work, sure. You have to make a living; it would be great to work in a cool building (literally and figuratively – I’m writing this from Texas, HOT capital of the world). Restaurants. Bars. Churches. Entertainment. Arts. Culture. All of these needs and wants are built around the communities humans create, and voila! Architecture.
It’s fun to look at cities, to see how the old mixes with the new. How banners and flags go up on main streets giving them a circus-like feel. How lines, trees, curves and air all play together to create an “essence”. Some feel inspired, some feel playful, some are majestic and others are downright dirty.
Cities show the outward expression of humanity. They show us who we are.
