Initial Reflection and Topic Proposal

Cultural competence is so important. Webster’s dictionary defines this concept as the ability or skill to understand the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group. I hope to grow in my understanding of Hispanic culture through the study of this region’s architecture. While I know that it will take much longer than one semester to truly understand the heart and intricate beliefs of a group of people I look forward to delving deeper into this unique part of the world.

I have chosen to look at Hispanic culture through the lens of architecture because whenever I look at images or videos from Hispanic regions I am drawn to the unique buildings. Whether it be the choice of colors or interesting construction I find that I am left with a desire to know more about these buildings. Perhaps the outside of the structure can give me some clues to those who live within its walls.
