difference between architecture and interior design
April 10, 2022

A question that a lot of architects have a hard time answering is what exactly is architecture. As a word, it is a broad and challenging one that is mostly defined in contrast to the rest of the design world. Although the field is diverse and complex, in fact, architecture is the discipline that deals with the creation of tangible things, in all its aspects: urban, architectural, social, and ecological.

architecture as a political means
April 8, 2022

In a world where politics is often perceived as dead, architecture can be seen as the last bastion of power in society. Although architecture’s role has been changing over the years, it is not surprising that the field of architecture is still very political. The very basis of the profession is founded on the principle that the final result of architecture must be a piece of art, but that art is not just a matter of individual interpretation. As it is described in the opening quote of this essay, architecture “must reflect the social context and cultural values that are the product of its own time.” Architecture is, therefore, a political form of art, as much as the fine arts and literature are.

is the modern architecture an architectural trend
April 4, 2022

Modern architecture started as an expression that questioned many conventional building strategies and focused on the process of designing, rather than the building itself. It is often associated with the birth of the United States’ mid-20th century Bauhaus movement and a philosophy that was characterized by clean, white, modern and rational aesthetics. These ideas quickly spread internationally to become a hallmark of design in countries like Japan, Netherlands and Switzerland and even today continue to shape the architectural discourse.

evolution of architecture from neolithic to metaverse.
April 1, 2022

The term architecture was used by the ancient Egyptians to describe the construction of their tombs, and by the Romans for their buildings and monuments, but its modern form was initiated by the Middle Ages. In other words, architecture is the art of building or designing buildings for practical, religious or aesthetical purposes. As the name itself suggests, this is a new sub-field of engineering, as opposed to architecture, which is a more philosophical, artistic and social concept. In today’s terms, architecture can be viewed as a multi-disciplinary and applied science, because of the different aspects of design it involves: science, mathematics, engineering, design, art, design science, research, psychology, urbanism and sustainability.

architecture and architect
December 24, 2021

Architecture is the design and construction of buildings. It is a profession that has existed for thousands of years, although it wasn't called architecture until the 18th century. The first evidence of architectural activity dates back to around 100,000 BC, with simple dwellings made from mud bricks. Architects are responsible for designing buildings that will serve people's needs in all aspects of their lives – whether they're residential or commercial, government or religious structures. They must be able to visualize how these spaces can be used by people and then construct them accordingly. Architects consider many factors when deciding what type of building to construct including: geographical location, climate conditions, size constraints and available materials among others before drawing up blueprints for projects which may take months or even years to complete depending on the scale and complexity involved.
