Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on sexuality and space. The house has a floor system and arrangement that creates an offsetting of floor plates. The design was based on the perceived roles of the people living in the space. Rooms for more domestic situations are open, in the fount of the house, and oversee activities in other rooms. Rooms meant for males are at the back of the house, and more private then the rooms meant for females. .
Adolf Loos suggests that space is an essential element in domestic environments that people live in. In his view, privacy and publicity bring about considerations between the male and female sexes. The private rooms are usually more feminine. For example, the bedroom usually has private reserved spaces for the females to dress. Additionally, the kitchen is usually more feminine because it’s the women that use the most. On the other hand, men’s spaces are usually more open. This leaves their rooms freer and allows viewing easily. Loos also differentiates these spaces by creating differences in the entrances and height levels of servants or masters. .
The main aim of the paper is to explore the relationship between created spaces, and the people who live in these designed environments. What the paper aims to bring out is the role of the woman and her position in society based on the architecture of the earlier days and how this defined the regard and position of the woman in the present-day society. As such the paper will analyze the previous paper with a major focus on the architectural reflection of the image of the woman and the position the same architectural designs placed the men. Additionally, the research paper will be to critically evaluate the effects of the earlier architectural models and reflections on the position and perception of the woman in society. The following are the research objectives: Firstly, to investigate the effects of the earlier architectural models and reflections on the position and perception of the woman in the earlier society. .
