Initially man tries to gain some control over his constantly changing & often threatening natural surroundings by creating physical spaces to meet his basic needs for shelter, food, safety, & family. When he accomplishes this, he often attempts to shape his personal spaces to project his desired image to others - his wealth, his power, his refinement, his beliefs, & his knowledge.
