“Constructing Comfort” explores ideas of the controlled environment and the ways in which technological elements both compete with the natural and emulate it.
We live in heated and air conditioned houses, with lighting that allows us to ignore our circadian rhythm. Once, the function of architecture was to respond to the environment to create a liveable situation in hostile or uncomfortable surrounds. In contemporary society, architecture no longer has to directly respond to the environment; instead we create our own isolated environments governed not by the weather, the light, the season, but by the switch.
