I was impressed that there were so many fine images that came in for this competition, and it was difficult to make the final selections. Several of the entries reflected a finely tuned eye for design, architecture and their connection to the landscape.The built environment is a fascinating subject that can be approached from many angles. This collection of photographs reflects the various and diverse ways in which we see the subject and will make an fascinating exhibit. It was an honor to select the images for this exhibit.

The structures we build — whether a factory, a hot dog stand, a Gothic cathedral, a home, a fence, or a constructed landscape — reflect the vision of those who designed and built them. Of course, the way these structures are appreciated, understood, and interpreted is left to the eye of the beholder. For the exhibition The Built Environment, we sought photographs that expressed your interpretation of a built environment.
