Why choose Architecture?
I chose design because I am interested in design, especially in architecture, and I think there are many ideas in my mind, architecture is the best place to release it. As well as with the improvement of society and technology, the demand of this career likely increases significantly. In addition my uncle is an architect so that I can consult him for some questions of architecture and communicate it together.
Architecture (Latin architectura, after the Greek ἀρχιτέκτων – arkhitekton – from - "chief" and "builder, carpenter, mason") is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements.(Wikipedia)
History of Architecture
(Renaissance architecture)
Renaissance architecture is the architecture of the period between the early 15th and early 17th centuries in different regions of Europe, demonstrating a conscious revival and development of certain elements of ancient Greek and Roman thought and material culture. Stylistically, Renaissance architecture followed Gothic architecture and was succeeded by Baroque architecture. Developed first in Florence, with Filippo Brunelleschi as one of its innovators, the Renaissance style quickly spread to other Italian cities, such as Florence Cathedral.(Historyworld, n.d.)
"Gothic architecture is a style of architecture that flourished during the high and late medieval period. It evolved from Romanesque architecture and was succeeded by Renaissance architecture. Originating in 12th-century France and lasting into the 16th century, Gothic architecture was known during the period as Opus Francigenum ("French work") with the term Gothic first appearing during the latter part of the Renaissance. Its characteristics include the pointed arch, the ribbed vault and the flying buttress."(Vasari, G., 1991)
