What is Architecture?


This video is a great way to explain architecture. It really gets behind the idea that architecture school teaches you a method of thinking; a way of analyzing the world around you.

What do you think: right on, or do they miss the mark? How would you describe and explain architecture?

Update: I recently gave a presentation to a group of fifth graders about architecture. I used this concept to help explain what they would learn in college. All around the room when I asked, “What makes a cup a cup?” the kids lit up with ideas and you could see their ‘wheels’ turning. Are there any other analogies we could use to describe architecture?
