Constructed environment-Argia

  1. How does Calvino describe this city?

calvion describes this city as a lonely  and dark place. It has earth instead of air which means that it could possibly be a grave that is filled with mud.The city consists of widening worm tunnels and trees. It is extremly clustored damp and awfully quiet.

2.Monuments tell a story of a place and they make up the history of a place.Monuments also give us a brief idea of how people live in a society, i.e the style of thier houses , means of transportation, kind of food etc. In Argia on each stair another stairway is set in negative, over the roofs of houses hang layers of  rocky terrain like skies with clouds.

3.How does urban interact with natural?

Urban and natural play equal roles in Argia. For example there houses on top of which layers of rocky terrain like skies hang, on each stair another stairway  is set in negative. This sort of gives us a sense of urbanisation, on the other hand, there are widening worm tunnels and crevices where roots twist and there is mud instead of air.

4.How do you distinguish between natural and man made?

Argia is natural city which has a few man made elements.It is filled with dirt and mud. It has widening worm tunnels and crevices where roots twist.The stairs and houses with roofs are the man made elements in the city.
