This can be inferred from the photo's characteristics, such as the lack of symmetry, unconventional shapes, and a more relaxed and casual overall appearance. It does not conform to the strict rules and conventions typically associated with formal or traditional architectural designs. Additionally, there are no obvious signs of it being a commercial building, further supporting the informal classification.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    These types of shapes tend to have irregular edges and are often associated with things found in the natural environment.

    • A.

      Organic shapes

    • B.

      Geometric shapes

    • C.

      Man-made shapes

    • D.

      Biomorphic shapes

    Correct Answer
    A. Organic shapes
    Explanation
    Organic shapes are characterized by irregular edges and are commonly found in nature. Unlike geometric shapes, which have precise and defined edges, organic shapes are more fluid and unpredictable, resembling objects such as leaves, clouds, or rocks. Man-made shapes, on the other hand, are intentionally created by humans and often have symmetrical or structured forms. Biomorphic shapes refer to organic shapes that specifically resemble living organisms or body parts. Therefore, the correct answer is organic shapes because they align with the description of having irregular edges and being associated with things found in the natural environment.

    Size constancy 

    • A.

      Refers to using only the same shapes of objects in an artwork

    • B.

      Refers to the tendency to see the same object as the same size (no matter the distance) in an artwork

    • C.

      Refers to the technique of not changing the shape of the object in an artwork

    Correct Answer
    B. Refers to the tendency to see the same object as the same size (no matter the distance) in an artwork
    Explanation
    Size constancy refers to the tendency to see the same object as the same size (no matter the distance) in an artwork. This means that even if an object appears smaller or larger due to its position or distance from the viewer, our brain automatically adjusts and perceives it as being the same size. This allows us to maintain a consistent understanding of the object's size, regardless of its placement within the artwork.

    • C.

      Ground/negative form

    • D.

      Geometric/closed form

    Correct Answer
    B. Geometric/open form
    Explanation
    The correct answer is geometric/open form. In a geometric form, the shape is created using geometric shapes such as squares, circles, triangles, etc. An open form refers to a form that does not have a solid or enclosed structure, allowing for more freedom and openness in the design. Therefore, a geometric/open form would imply a design that incorporates geometric shapes in an open and free-flowing manner.
