People, Not Just a Building, Make for ‘Place’

People, Not Just a Building, Make for ‘Place’.

“It is a humanistic inquiry that recognizes that buildings and settings, alone, do not make place,” said Kingston Health in a talk Dec. 13 at the annual meeting of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments in Oxford, UK. “People, in their interaction with the natural and built environment, make place.”

Professor Heath was speaking on the emerging field of “situated regionalism.” The integration of new construction and preservation within the dynamics of crowded urban environments may be eased through the use of automated parking. The space saved may give the architect more flexibility to integrate their design aesthetically within limited space.
