What is Architecture? Architecture is the thoughtful making of space. - Louis Kahn What is Architecture? Architecture is the imaginative blend of art and science in the design of environments for people. People need places to eat, work, live and play. Architects transform these needs into concepts and then develop the concepts into building images that can be constructed by others.
