The Built Environment.

This refers to man-made surroundings that provide the activity for human life. This can form a town or city, to a personal living space. The built environment is identified as the opposite to the natural enviroment. When people think of man-made they think of popular towns and cities where most people live. Everyone lives near a built enviroment. There are different types: cities, villages, towns, and farm land. Every building of the built environment has a an architect. Even land that has been interfered with by man such as farms and gardens is a built environment because it has not occured naturally.
