    V.   Spatiality of Night 

    Before the 20th century the night-space was all similar but thereafter it changed to a lot different thing as the night has been fulfilled with light. NYC is the gray shaded environment of the day and the lighting in the night (or a night sun such as skyscrapers) enlightens the environment [turning the built environment to a lot different space!].

    Another amazing example: L.A. is  a different presentation of an object in night and day and it gives different dimension to urban life and sometimes buildings are as Lantern in night.

About this Blog

As the world is developing its way of communication, we, the architects need to be more curious on stuff around us! Rise of different philosophies around the globe, rapid growth in our awareness, transformation of communication types and many more items around are leading the ARCHITECTURE to an absolute new brand of its roots! It is time to ask: are we, the TRANSFORMERS or are we the results of TRANSFORMATIONS of GENIUS LOCUS (the protective spirit of a place)?
