The examples in no underlined portion are type of found spaces, so SUCH "found spaces is correct
VERB
Audience is a collective noun and therefore will take singular verb - feels

E

audience feels rather than audience feel ... so C is out

such "found spaces" better than "found spaces".. as such goes back and refers specifically to "storefronts, bars, and even backyards,".. hence, A & B out

between option D & E.. E is easy winner..

Can someone please explain why "than" in E is better than "rather than" in D?

The non underlined portion of the question already has "better" so comparison is already implied. Rather is also used for choose between option. Correct usage of Rather will be x rather than Y. Her the correct usage in this example is better served by X than Y.
