The Right Angle Journal - Winter 2019 - 13

(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14)

In investigations in Canada and the UK, I found that
members of the wider population, when they are shown
images of houses from their own area, are surprisingly good
at detecting reproductions, regardless of the reproduction
quality. In one experiment, 77.9 per cent of the 110 subjects
correctly placed the authentic Victorian/Edwardian houses
in the 1800 to 1925 era, while only 16.7 per cent assigned
that range to the reproductions. One might presume that
people are influenced by evidence of aging, such as normal
deterioration, soiling and slight sags in the roof. However,
when those same subjects analyzed the images more
carefully, they tended to assign the same characteristics
to both the real and reproduction houses. Factors, such as
character, assigned prestige, impressiveness, and overall
esteem were much the same for both authentic and reproduction houses.
This suggests that most people can detect reproductions
in their built environments, but - with the possible exception of six-year-olds, and others who actively engage with
the built environment - they are willing to accept them as
reasonable substitutes for the real thing. Obviously more
research is in order.
