Value

2010/03/22 § Leave a comment

A post written in Mammoth has had me thinking about architectural value, and how this value holds little to no weight in our suburbs.  With their brief in Magazine on Urbanism called The Shelter Category,  we are treated to an analysis of housing culture through the eyes of HGTV (probably the most influential design tool for suburbanites in this country, at least.)  The shows on this channel treat our homes as wealth generators, with all value in any remodel or paint job being  resale value.  So when one goes to add something subjective to one’s place, one must first think of those inhabitants who will live in the space AFTER resale.  There is no comfort value, no design value, only monetary value.  Our homes as stock.
