The cultural identity is a quality we want to pass on and develop. It occurs when a society chooses a group solidarity that they define based on shared values and on a common past. It is rooted in a historical sense of continuity and this is best represented by architecture.
So, how can architecture help in creating a sense of belonging?
By investigating what makes an area unique, I want to try enrich future projects with a sense of place. Especially in new neighborhoods in our western culture of mass consumerism is a feeling of authenticity important in becoming a lively community.
