Architecture is a science, art, and technique of planning, designing, and building structures on the landscape of earth – and is different from the skills employed in constructions of those structures. As an art form, architecture is a way in which we express ourselves and ideas on the earth’s environment. As with other art forms, architectural process, design, and the final products are subject to cultural, technological, and stylistic changes.
Architectural products, such as buildings, dams, and stadiums, are typically seen as cultural perceptions and symbols expressed in the form of art. These works don’t just offer up protection, workspaces, or shelter; they also represent cultural and human ideals.
