Question from the Yellow Group

Following Friday's tour of the campus, our group started wondering how architects arrived at where axes are placed. Our question was: do architects and designers consider axes before they design a building? Is this usually out of necessity or is it typically a more aesthetic decision?

As a group, we were really interested in the importance of axes. Some expressed how they didn't notice all of the different crossing points on campus until this class. We talked about how small differences such as the placement of axes these can make a big difference in how people perceive their environments.
