Not just physical structures, but the emotional and intellectual structures that we dwell in?
How important is the Common Good, including the welfare of people, the environment, ideas, personal and communal history, when we erect an edifice to shelter in?
How do we choose the materials for our structures -
cost, intrinsic worth, memory, availability, ecology, philosophy and ethics?
Who defines beauty and the visual aesthetic?
Shelter is an essential for healthy living: how do we provide shelter for all?
What do shelters protect us from?
Do they encourage and develop community or do they contribute to isolation and separation?
Should shelters be invincible, impermeable, or vulnerable and receptive to change and assault?
Is our identity revealed in the structures we erect?
