How does architecture impact our lives? What kind of messages does it send? How do we interact with it on a daily basis? These are some questions that I will be exploring in this post.

For example, a government building might send a message of authority, while a church might send a message of spirituality. In this day and age, architecture is becoming more and more about aesthetics rather than function, which can lead to some interesting results. Sometimes the beauty of a building can overshadow its true purpose.
