The Impact of Built Environments on You

The built environments around you impact your life whether you realize it or not. I have found it to be true that the places you go can effect the mood you are in drastically. Exterior built environments and interior built environments both have an impact. Little things as simple as the lighting of a place can have an effect on you, natural sunlight tends to boost anyone’s mood. Also, the places you go will have an impact on your physical health.

The exterior built environment of Old Fourth Ward Park and the interior built environment of Ponce City Market has definite effect on the people who go there emotionally and physically.

Each of these six genres have the exact same layouts, but different stories and articles that are related to its genre. After the different genres, there are three more tabs: “CALENDAR”, “ABOUT + CONTACT”, and “DONATE”. These three sections are different from the genre ones.
