In conclusion to this class blog effort, I would like to illustrate how systems thinking regarding buildings has permeated my general experience in the world. This has happened quite a lot at my home recently, where I am alone with my thoughts and my average-construction-studio-apartment.

The placement of the heating unit leads me to spend 99.9-110% of my time at my house in the kitchen area, and also leads to an impossibility of getting up in the morning.

When I look at this dreamy diagram, all I can think of is utilizing the entirity of my house at any given moment.
