Head to Foot

Schooner-Bay-13MAY16-4118

Buildings reflect the human form in several ways. Our bodies are topped with our heads, and stand on the ground with our feet. Lovable buildings tend to do the same. See the subtle break betwee the base of this building at Schooner Bay and its wall? That break makes the wall more durable, but it also reflects the way that humans stand on the ground. In other words, it is the foot of the house. The roof is the head of the house, of course.
