Architecture

People have always wanted to make structures more unique and more efficiently designed. Architecture is both the process and the production of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures.  Different styles of architecture can be inspired by religion, art, people, and geometric shapes. People will often perceive architecture as cultural symbols and as works of art. Extraordinary buildings have been around for a very long time. An example is the ancient Egyptian pyramids. They have been around for thousands of years and many people wonder how the Egyptians ever created them. As time passed, people became smarter and began to use better materials,  and create more interesting designs.

Now in our day with so much new technology, making fancy architecture only has the limit of your imagination. Certain tools will become more advanced due to an incoming generation of architects that are well educated. More and more people will start to design all types of buildings with more tech advances. People are also researching and experimenting with different types of materials. For instance instead of someone using wood for a structure they could instead use a strong metal like iron.

There are so many types of architecture that are unique and interesting. Some of the most popular or well known structures include the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Colosseum, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Hagia Sophia, World Trade Center, and various others. There are people who are always going for number one. For example, the tallest building in the world the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is 829.8 m (2,722 ft) tall, will soon be the second tallest building because in 2020 it will be overtaken by the Jeddah Tower, currently under construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The architects of these tall buildings must make sure that every measurement and calculation is precise or there could be a catastrophic disaster.

Architecture can only be as good as the architect. A famous architect who created modern designs is an Iraq-British women named Zaha Hadid. She was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004. She received the UK’s most prestigious architectural award, the Stirling Prize, in 2010 and 2011. Some of her famous works include Bridge Pavilion, Heydar Aliyev Center, Bergiselschanze, and many other elaborate designs.

Architecture is a beautiful way to create an elaborate piece of art. There are some styles and shapes to compose structures and I think it is incredible what some people can create.
