Architecture has yielded some of the world’s greatest monuments, evidence of passed and present civilizations. Pharoes, Emperors and Kings made sure to leave their mark in the world. It’s a combination of precise calculations, artistic vision and hard work. What has become of architecture today? Where is it headed?
Is this a question of what today's great works of architecture are, or an analysis of current trends and movements, or a look into celebrity architects (starchitects) and their influence on style? – chrischan5 years ago
It can be any one or all of these. I wrote the question this way on purpose. My goal was to keep it broad enough for there to be multiple points of discussion within the same overarching theme of architecture. – nnader5 years ago
This is an excellent question - - as an architect myself, I see myself and my contemporaries grappling with what architecture means, the domain it occupies, and its relevance in an increasingly technocratic society. – SUNANDO DASGUPTA AND ASSOCIATES2 years ago
