Program Summary

Architecture is everywhere. Every structure, including a house, a campus, an office, a hospital, and a shop, was built with a specific purpose in mind.

 

Architecture is the art and science of designing buildings and other physical structures. A broader definition frequently involves the design of the entire building sector, from the macro scale of city planning, urban design, and landscape design to the micro-scale of building components and, on occasion, furniture.

 

The term "architecture" is often used to refer to the practice of producing architectural services.
