It’s not often that a building comes along and does the job it’s designed to do.
And yet, many buildings are perfectly suited to art.
It is, in fact, this architectural quality that has made the building of the future so important.
Art is an intangible commodity.
And it is in this capacity that buildings have become so crucial to society and to our sense of identity.
A building can have a huge impact on how we think about what we have, how we value what we own, and how we view the world.
But, if we look at the world today, it is increasingly clear that buildings are only one part of our modern experience.
And while they can and do play an important role in our everyday lives, they are also the world’s greatest tools for destruction.
This article is the first of a two-part series exploring the architecture of the new century.
Part 1 looks at what makes an office building great; part 2 looks at why art is so important in an architectural context.
In Part 1, we look back at the evolution of office buildings in the late 20th century.
In this part, we explore the evolution in architecture from 1884 to the present day.
We start with the work of the architects who created some of the best buildings in history.
This will help you understand why architecture today is so vital, and what it means to work in an architect’s studio.
Next, we start to see how architectural trends are changing and how architects and planners are shaping how we live, work and travel.
In the end, we’ll look at how buildings are being used for business and cultural purposes in our cities and towns.
It will take you on an exploration into the history of architecture.
