Architecture Blogs – From humble single-story dwellings to million-dollar modern high-rises, architecture feeds the imagination of what has been and what could be. Architecture is a complex blend of designing and building structures for uses that vary from a single inhabitant to crowds of thousands. Every architectural design is unique and builds on the knowledge that’s come before. Today’s glass and chrome skyscrapers are reminiscent of tall, ancient mud buildings in the East. When, during a walk, passersby gaze up at iconic New York buildings like the Flatiron Building, they’re looking at hundreds of years of progress from the building’s architectural historical roots of the Parthenon in Ancient Greece.
At its heart, architecture takes the moments of a culture—its people, its language, its customs—and creates a work of art that reflects that culture’s values. Nowadays, we’re seeing more eco-friendly, green buildings, constructed with solar panels and designed from recycled materials, reflecting our society’s goals of sustainability. We’re also seeing smaller living spaces made larger than life, as the micro-housing movement takes off.
Many cities have adopted architectural designs that reflect the cultures of its people, whether they’re new buildings with Asian flair, or interior design that includes Islamic art or antique area rugs and carpets. Step inside the rooms of some buildings and your mood changes. Step inside the hallways of old libraries or in the stands of stadiums, and your whole world can change. Take a look at some of these articles on architecture. They might do more than just introduce you to new types of buildings and reintroduce you to forgotten places.
Some of these amazing designs may not just change your outlook on the architecture around you today—they might just change your whole perspective on the world you live in. Read the articles, check out the pictures, and get inspired for your own home or office. The world of architecture and design is waiting for you.
