Architect no.1: "....and all of this area here will be concrete block, since nobody will see it."
Architect no. 2(in irritated voice): "Who cares if nobody sees it; God will see it!"
It it just a matter of cost that these backs are ignored? Is it just too difficult to consider all sides? Is it bad design to have a side that cannot be seen? These are questions that should be addressed in your study. There are many Rennaissance churches (eg.: San Lorenzo in Florence)that seem to ignore all sides but the front that faces the piazza...is this the same thing as the unplanned back of my suburban house?
Also to be examined: the role of building service? Is there an "architecture of service elements"??? Best of Luck!
