Spanish Culture as Reflected in the Built Environment of Spanish Cities
Architecture is a major component of culture. The public and private spaces we use reflect our needs, both functional and aesthetic. An understanding of the relationship between landscape and buildings in a city context can lead to a better understanding of the culture of those who use the spaces. This paper presents results of research in Madrid, Spain. Through observational research and analysis, we examine how individuals and groups of people function and interact in various public settings.
