Architecture as a Medium for Communication
The main three things any architecture process will include are reliability, utility, and beauty. In many ways, architecture is similar to a language, especially the way a non-verbal communication takes place. Architecture is also a way of communicating, though a bit difficult to describe. Whether it is a crowded, isolated, huge or small structure, it is a fact that man wouldn’t cease building and designing human arrangement of space, and thus architecture would be an integral part of any building process.
Moreover, architecture provides firmness, commodity and delight to any structure. It is truly a blend of passion, vocation, science as well as business. Architectural building is a social art and an artful science quite distinguished from other man-made structures. One, an architectural structure is different because of the suitability of the work it provides for use by human beings and the adaptability of peculiar activities of human civilization. Second, because of its features of stability and performance, it provides the much needed value to any structure. And third, it is also different because of the communication of experience and notions that it depicts through its form.
Looking closely at the definitions of architecture, one can realize it is much more complex and broader than a language. On the flip side, it also covers desks, cooking instruments, and even clothing as part of the study. When the architects start working on the ideas, they gather details about the sense of how objects and actions are organized in the world. It could be finding answers to questions like what do people do, when should they do it, were should they place themselves, how essential is it, and how is the set of tasks associated to the rest of the society. Architecture thus contains stories that can be read and comprehended. A community passes on this tradition, like the history, to the following generation.
Thus, architecture assists humans in becoming accustomed to the environment in harmony while promoting health and well being. It improves our lives by offering economic opportunities and developing a legacy signifying our culture and traditions.
