Humans have spent a lot of time crafting the spaces in which we spend time. Think of it: Pyramids, castles, cathedrals, skyscrapers, museums, hospitals. Since moving out of the cave, we’ve invested heavily in planning and constructing places of habitation, work, and worship.

Junior Jamie Roselle has focused on architectural elements and given thoughtful consideration to the way our creations speak about us. As she wrote to the AP Board, “I’ve focused on a range of textures; from old and worn out to the new and modern. People have these qualities, too. What can we learn about people from the things they’ve built? What can we learn from a building by the way it ages?”
