  • Look for the cultural character of the city.

Cathedral, old and new.

  • How do environmental factors effect the subject you are looking at ? The weather/commercial concerns/economic history?

Money is a concern where you have to pay for the activity, poor students, weather may effect if we go outside (rain).

  • How does space change over time?

More new buildings, people and their interests.

  • What is the difference between space and play?

Space: different areas. Play: how they get used (leisure time).
