Second Built Environment Analysis – Extra

The City of Atlanta, Psychologically Impairing its Residents Different spaces and environments are equipped with specific features that psychologically change ones mood and behavioral characteristics. This is evident in the way we feel and function in our day to day lives in the many different atmospheres we are in. Have you ever noticed the way you feel when you enter into a library or a large room of bodies studying? Doesn’t it psychologically make you feel as if you want to just pick up a book or begin being productive and start doing homework or study notes? This feeling is caused by the built environment of the particular space you are in and the vibes that are emitted from this area. This same concept is also true in different geographical and urbanized or suburban areas as well. For example, the built environment of Atlanta has a special and unique atmosphere that psychologically brings out different emotions and types of work ethics for individuals verses being outside of the metropolitan city area of Atlanta. There are various factors that contribute to a particular spaces built environment. A few of these contributing factors include the architectural structure of a space, the colors associated and themed in a particular environment; and the overall vibes a space emits due to the types of people around, location, and geographical setting. An experiment conducted by psychologists at the University of British Columbia took a look at how the color of interior walls influence the imagination. The results seemed to be noticeably understandable because of how these colors usually make us feel as well. Red was...

Artifacts for Junkman’s Daughter

This is the first picture I took after walking into the store. It features the head of an Elvis look-alike and a lot of pink. The many colorful wigs can also be seen here. My favorite thing about the store was the color mashup. Everywhere I looked there was a new, different color. Nothing seemed to fit together, but I thought it was all very cool.   A better view of the many colorful wigs. I’m not quite sure if I’d ever wear a fire red or electric blue wig. However, it does look good on the mannequin. It’s an “all out of sorts” display and I think that it what makes it so attractive and pleasing to (my) eyes.   Junkman’s Daughter sells more than clothes! They also have some really neat dishware. Everything and anything for everyone and anyone. Other than the wigs, I like that the store sells a variety of things that can appeal to many shoppers.   I’m a huge Star Wars fan and I am proud of it. Once again, the store was full of wonderful surprises. I was happy to see the shoes and utterly heartbroken when I had to leave them at the store. Junkman’s Daughter definitely has shoes for standing out.   This reminded me of a fun house with the clown on the side and the giant red stairs. It’s almost like the store is anything but a store. The decor gives shoppers the feeling that it is something more and makes the experience that much more enjoyable.   “Meet the...

Artifacts for Atlanta Airport Website

The homepage of the website of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The layout is easy to follow, making the information easily accessible to visitors on the website. The display also shows what is believed to be the most useful or most accessed information (flight information, wait times, etc.)   Further down the homepage on the Atlanta airport website, links to other useful information can be found. I assume that these links are also accessed very often by visitors. The way I view the placement of the content on the homepage is that it is placed in regards to importance of the information and/or demand for the information.   One thing this website offers is tips for traveling. I am not quite sure how often one might want or need to access this page. However, the fact that it is on the website further shows the point of the purpose of the website being to inform its visitors.   I found this page to be a little odd, simply because I wasn’t quite sure what kind of business one could do with an airport. Simple curiosity is what made this page useful to me. There is definitely an intended audience (group of viewers) for the page.   I assume this page is meant to give the page a more personal feel (for lack of a better tern). Instead of just travel information, wait time, food options, etc., the manager’s welcome note can found on the page as well. This gives the visitors the feeling that everything isn’t just technological, humans are actually behind the operations of an airport...
