Architecture is both art and science, drawing on and intertwined with psychology, sociology, economics, politics and more.
Architecture is not mere creation of the physical environment in which people live, but architecture is more than just the built environment, it’s also an inseparable part of our culture.
It stands as a representation of how we see ourselves, as well as how we see the world.
As the world became more and more connected, the styles evolved, but even in modern construction, there is still an importance in honoring the cultural nuances in the built environment.
Technology also has changed the way we design: computer-aided drafting, BIM modeling, and virtual reality, to name a few, have made it much easier to bridge between vision and reality, create unique and complex shapes and convey information in ways that have never been seen before.
