Architecture is Personal

I loved this quote from Roman Mars on the 99% Invisible Podcast, #67 - Broken Window

Architecture is personal. The strangest part of our interaction with the built environment is what can be so evocative and meaningful for you can mean absolutely nothing to someone else.

If you have 11 minutes, give this podcast a listen. It's very worth your time to hear the story of a girl who accidentally broke a window as a kid and grew up harboring the guilt of it because it was never fixed.

Melissa would have probably forgotten about the incident had it not been for one inexplicable thing: the window didn’t get fixed.  Ever.

The illustrations for this episode are great too.
