It is the duty of the architect to choose the right place for construction because the place plays a big role , And now we’ll see some quotes from some architects ..

The space within the building is the reality of that building.
»Frank Lloyd Wright»

The internal space, that space that (…) cannot be completely represented in any
form, neither learned nor lived, but by direct experience, is the protagonist of the
architectural fact. (…)
The four facades of a house, of a church, of a palace, however beautiful, constitute
nothing more than the box in which the architectural jewel is included (…) In every
building, what it contains is the box of walls, the content is the internal space.
‘Bruno Zevi»


Classic space is characterised by closure and pressure because the historical architecture was characterised by the huge wall
