    Personally I consider that architecture is a profession of service that should develop clear proposals in response to the everyday needs of the people who interact with our work or are contextually affected by it in to order to improve their quality of life in an urban dynamic. I have lived in Caracas, Venezuela for the better part of my life and I have witnessed a substantial deterioration of this city during the past years, studying architecture allowed me to understand this in a much clearer way

    The Architecture Studio All my life I had dreamed of this day. I had spent countless hours playing “architecture firm” and designing various buildings on my “Home Design 2000” program. Today was the commencement of the fall 2003 semester at State University’s College of Architecture, Planning, and Design (or CAPD for short). I stood in studio #323, affectionately known to architecture majors as the “Loft Studio.” I felt lucky to get the studio with the coolest layout and the most space, for

    it represents a new beginning. It is interesting to read that “in the Bronze Age, there had been no temples” (Lawrence, 61). It is further impressive to have an introduction of an era that was capable of producing such a magnitude of impressive architecture following a rapid decline of knowledge. Although not a temple, Lefkandi in Euboia requires mentioning in this summary due to its impressive size (62). As Lawrence explains, the architectural form of this building is closely associated with buildings

    The history of architecture over the years has demonstrated that design goes beyond merely providing formal beauty through functional sculptures, but increasingly, projects are having an influence on social, environmental and economic aspects of our communities. The social responsibility of architects lies in part in believing that architecture can create better places, that architecture can affect society, and that it can even have a role in making a place civilized by making a community more livable

    Writing and Architecture A story is not a story until it is told. The way that this is done gives it depth, meaning, and tone. A house is not a house until it is built.

It is up to the author or designer to determine how the idea will be interpreted and what method will be used to communicate the idea. Choosing

    • 2 Pages

    Classical Architecture The West has always put a great emphasis on how beholden it is to many cultural and political institutions derived from Classical Antiquity. This has been most consistent in aesthetic conceptions of art and architecture. Many monuments and architectural traditions of the West derive directly from ancient sources, in an attempt to link the ideals of modern life with those of ancient Greece and Rome. Nowhere is this more evident than in the capitol of the United States where

Despite the high significance and the widespread use of it, there is much ambiguity and inconsistency in the use of this term. It is certainly arguable that during the past decades, the world has been undergoing the most significant period of technological innovation and global restructuring since the first decades of the 20th century.
