People living around Cabela’s don’t realize that they are actually controlled by a unique urbanism. People are living in the artificial area but they think that this area has always existed there. People do not realize this area actually is growing up under the control of Cabela’s.
People think this area is developing in the “natural” way and they do not know that there are different layers in this urbanism. Another condition that exists in this urbanism is the relationship between the density of buildings and the power which these buildings have. The area which has low density of buildings has more power to control this perimeter and controls a large territory, for example, Cabela’s. On the other hand, the area which has high density of buildings has less power to influence this perimeter and controls a small territory, for example, the residential area.
My project in this perimeter studio wants to tell people about these conditions in this unique urbanism. This project tries to lead people to explore their living environment. All experience will be controlled by the images, the closed garden, the public garden and the fragrance in this building. People walk through the various spaces and experience the difference between artificial fragrance and natural fragrance and feel the level of density in their environment.
