Built Environment Final Analysis

Throughout the semester going on the different built environments journeys the ones that stood out the most were the interior and exterior built environments. For the interior I visited the Coca Cola Factory and it has a different vibe because it’s an interactive museum, movie theater, gift shop compared to my exterior built environment Ormewood Park which is a community of houses, stores, and churches.

Ormewood Park and The Coca Cola Factory is a tight knit community which is safe, fun, and makes you feel welcomed. Ormewood Park is a neighborhood not too far from my job on Moreland Ave. and I get to drive through daily and constantly exposed to the neighborhood.

The neighborhood has a couple of churches, a charter school, and really unique house setups. I visited a couple of houses that struck me and it was like the houses were on sticks. They were two story houses that looked long and unsturdy (I knew they were though). They were the same style right next to each other. I went down another road and noticed a different setup of houses and a totally different style. The sounds were mostly birds chirping and airplanes flying through the sky. Below I inserted my sound clip from my trip to Ormewood Park of the various sounds. http://sites.gsu.edu/bthompson52/files/2016/02/New-Recording-2-28ojr5y.m4a The Coca Cola Factory is a well known museum all over the United States. It is a very fun and...
