CARPENTERED ENVIRONMENT

n. an environment which typically consists of blocks, squares, and rectangles. This implies that physical and visual experiences are viewed in a more angular way. Hypotheses also suggest that people exposed to carpentered environments interpret parallelograms drawn two-dimensionally as three-dimensional objects. This demonstrates depth perception and optical illusion.

CARPENTERED ENVIRONMENT: "Early on in life, being exposed to a carpentered environment will have a certain bearing on one's perceptual development."
