Here is the topic.
#We shape our buildings and afterward our buildings shape us#

Explain what you think this statement means and discuss the extent to which you do or do not agree with it. Support your views with reasons and/or specific examples from your experience, observations or reading.

Is there any thoughts or suggestions in what directions the gmatter should go? Any suggestions on narrowing this?

I know it is not an AWA discussion room. Still probably someone has already dealt with this topic and can give me a piece of advice.
It is still sharing experience

This is an interesting topic , where did you find it as an AWA essay ?

Definitely it can be started as :
Winston Churchill’s epic statement, “We shape our buildings and afterwards, our buildings shape us,” is a fantastic observation of the architectural phenomenon, illuminating the fact that physical architecture is a static artifact and continues to transform us long after construction.

Personally i would agree with this. And would like to take it further giving examples how the physical architectures can affect your lives. The discussion could be taken into virtual forms by imagining people as flowing entities and physical architectures as stable forms that embrace hundreds of people in their lifetimes. ... Also several different forms of the buildings can be mentioned and how they are relevant for different people etc....

I would struggle to write a lot for such kind of topics i should say ... but should be ok. I hope you got some ideas from this.
Thanks.

By the way, this topic from OG 11.

This can be one of the issues on the exam.

All the actual AWA essay topics are in the OG 11 (Yellow book). They never change this.

Therefore, you can actually see all the possible AWA questions before taking the actual GMAT exam.
