Have you ever wondered why some buildings look exciting and welcoming while others don’t? Every building looks different and affects people differently. However, what disdains beautiful buildings from ugly buildings is universal. Alison Lurie explains why beautiful buildings bring joy and happiness and why ugly buildings don’t in her book: The Language of Houses: How Buildings Speak to Us. She writes: “Architecture can make us happy, but like a vulgar, dishonest speech, it can also make us miserable. Ugly, badly constructed buildings are unpleasant to live or work in, and dirt, disorder and failures of décor can also be deeply depressing.” You must agree with Lurie in this one. This blog is mainly influenced by the writings of Lurie with personal opinions of the undersigned.
