Geometry and human behavior: A cultural center in El Paso, Texas
Architectural forms have an affect on human behavior by the experiences throughout the environment. The environment is experienced through the relationship of the sumDundings and past experiences.^ People do not experience the environment on their own because they are part of what sun-ounds them, and the image of the environment is important on the way people perceive things. Therefore, geometry in relation to the surrounding environments will develop a sense of togetherness and enhance the cultural experience. The site is in El Paso, Texas next to Speaking Rock Casino, which is owned by the Tigua Indians. On the site there is a historical landmark, which is ignored due to the gambling that now takes place in the site. The cultural center will be a gathering place for people of the community and tourist to experience what life is and used to be. The facility will have a theater and a small museum with outdoor spaces throughout the site.
