Interactions within Architecture

As humans, we find ways to interact independently and as we have been taught, however, without knowing or paying attention to how architecture influences our daily interactions. We would never understand that architecture affects how we connect with a specific space or people. For example, a building that provides human interactive elements such as playful seating or outdoor exercise elements can bring people from all walks of life together with a few common interests. People will leave their homes to visit a place with such details or features.

That's how architecture can influence and even change how people view one another. Consider Downtown silver spring, for example; during the warm seasons, there are always different types of people outside on one square block enjoying one another's company. The design uses entertainment, such as music and exhibits, to bring people together while getting fresh air. Other interactive elements are often moved around or switched depending on the need. I used to enjoy the water feature I played in with my younger siblings.

The topic relates to the built environment because one part of the built environment is urban planning, which focuses on land use and how the public benefits.
