What integrates spatial buildings and structures with deeper concepts more than anything else, is the human’s connection with place and their description of the feeling of place. Human nature is undeniably connected with place, and it can be said that the human, experiences their own “self” through their sensual understanding in and from the place. The human, faces the environment using their body; their feet measure the length of corridors and the width of rooms … They experience themselves in places, and the place comes to life again through the human’s accumulated experiences.
