Class StructureEntity

Name: StructureEntity
Definition: Place having boundaries with material characteristics that distinguish it from its surroundings and, also, material entity that shapes the space where it is located, influencing visibility and/or mobility over it.
Is abstract: Yes
Aspects:
Comments: A structure entity is a place and a material entity at the same time. As a place, it has very specific and materially well-defined boundaries, since the associated materiality clearly establishes the division between the place and its surroundings. This kind of boundaries correspond to the concept of 'bona fide boundaries'. As a material entity, its existence alters the visbility and/or mobility over the surrounding area, as opposed to the case with object entities. The concept of structure entity roughly corresponds to what is often referred to as 'non-movable element'. This term, however, is difficult to define as it is based on a characteristic (i.e. the movability of things) that is circumstantial and prone to exceptions.
