Thoreau believes that if human constructed their own houses, like birds do, "the poetic faculty would be generally cultivated." He regards the profession of architect as an unnecessary division of labor, because it is natural for a man to build his own house, which permits him to think for himself.
In conclusion, Thoreau says that by building our own houses we would be exercising our understanding and our hands, two of the most important faculties of the soul. We would also be creating something with both our mental and physical abilities.
Christopher Columbus was born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. At the age of 29, he started on a journey to find a new trade route to Asia by sailing west across the Atlantic Ocean. During his three-year voyage, he discovered America. When he returned home, he reported his findings to the Kingdom of Spain, who allowed him to claim the lands for them. However there were many problems with this arrangement since Spain had already been sending explorers into the New World for years without reporting back. In addition, many people believed that the world was entirely round which meant that there was no need to search for a new route to Asia. So, the Spanish government sent Columbus on another mission where he again went ashore and claimed some of the land for them.
George Clarke delves into the remarkable world of little structures, where individuals transform small spaces into fantastic places to live, work, and play. He even attempts to make a few of his own. Kevin McCloud follows people as they construct their ideal home, with an emphasis on modern architecture, energy efficiency, and maximizing space and vistas.
Kevin McCloud is an American photographer based in New York City who specializes in capturing the beauty and creativity of architecture. His work has been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times, Wired, and National Geographic Traveler.
He began photographing houses when he read that list of requirements for being listed on the National Register of Historic Places. He realized that these were not only impressive buildings but also important landmarks that should be preserved for future generations. Since then, he has been exploring other types of architecture, from museums to businesses, finding joy and inspiration in each new project.
McCloud documents the process by which people create their ideal homes, starting with a simple idea and ending with a complete design. He captures the progress of construction, showing the evolution of a concept through drawings and models until it's finished. In between projects, he keeps himself busy shooting other interesting places, such as gardens, churches, and public monuments.
Overall, this book is a great introduction to architecture, while at the same time offering readers insight into the creative process of some of today's most talented architects.
"I had three seats in my house; one for solitude, two for companionship, and three for society," Thoreau says of the little hut he constructed with his own hands. When visitors arrived in great and unexpected numbers, there was only one chair for them all, so everyone stood up to save space. Thoreau wrote a lot about being comfortable when sitting down, so it's likely that all the chairs were soft and easy to sit in.
He also discussed the importance of having adequate seating inside your house. Without mentioning any specific diseases or ailments, he just said that people need to be able to sit comfortably inside your home so they aren't forced to stay outside even if it is cold or hot outside.
So, to summarize, Thoreau had three seats in his house for solitude, conversation, and entertainment. Since most homes today don't have as many rooms as Thoreau's, we need multiple chairs inside our houses for those same reasons.
According to the poet, a home may be created by a family of father, mother, sister, and brother who care for and love one another without any selfish motive. They share and are there in each other's joys and sorrows. This is what makes a home.
A house, as described by the poet, is more than a place to live; it is a reflection of the heart. It can be a palace or a prison depending on how you use it. The poet says that if you have a home, you have everything you need. If you are lonely, it is because you want something else too. Happiness is when your house is filled with people you love who love you back.
The poet wants us to understand that home is where the heart is. It can be a place where you feel safe and secure or a place where you suffer. But no matter what kind of home you have, it will always be special.
