威廉懷特的小都市空間的社會生活。之十四

陽光照耀的地方

懷特與團隊的第一支縮時攝影紀錄,是關於Segram’s Plaza上日光照射的觀察。他們發現,在溫帶的紐約,人們在廣場聚集的位置總是跟著日光走:有光處有人。這個關聯只在六月不成立,夏日陽光照耀的時間夠長也夠暖,但還不到熱,不管是不是坐在陽光下都舒服。

「使用空間的經驗品質是簡單的數字難以測量的,比如有陽光時一切都變得更好些」

編按:在熱帶與亞熱帶地區,上文的「陽光」也許適合代換成「陰影」。

Access to the Sun

The first time-laps record that Whyte and his team made, was of the sun passing across Segram’s Plaza. This showed that people followed the sunlight. Where the sun was, they sat: where there was none, they didn’t. In June this correlation vanished. The sun still moved; the people didn’t. While midday temperatures hadn’t risen a great deal, the extra warmth was enough to make the sun no longer a critical factor.

‘What simple figures don’t measure is the quality of the experience, which can be much greater when there is sun’.
