Architecture: The art and science of designing

The art and science of designing and erecting buildings and other physical structures. In relation to buildings, architecture has to do with the planning, designing and constructing form, space and ambience that reflect functional, technical, social, environmental, and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of material, technology, light and shadow. Architecture also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimating and construction administration.

As documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, architecture defines the structure and or behavior of a building or any other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed. Sculpture Sculpture is the act and art of making three-dimensional works of art such as statues. Sculptures may be carved, chiseled, modeled, cast, or constructed. They can be made of many different materials such as wood, stone, clay, metal, sand, ice, and even balloons. A person who creates sculpture is called an sculptor.

Sculptors use many different materials in their work such as stone, bronze, clay, iron, steel, paper, metal, marble, wood, soap, chocolate, butter, balloons, ice, snow, and sand. There are many end products including carousels, dolls, animals, action figures, mobiles, and kinetic sculptures. These pieces of art maybe placed inside or outside. Sculptures are often thematic on topics such as wildlife, religion, tradition, or fun. Many people create sculptures from found objects such as recycled materials.

New technologies are used to create interesting artwork that includes computers, holograms, and light. Reaction: Sculpture and Architecture are two terms that are often confused in terms of their meanings and connotations. Actually, both are different in their meanings. A sculpture is a three-dimensional work of art. Architecture on the other hand, is the designing and the construction of buildings. This is the main difference between sculpture and architecture. Sculpture involves the carving of wood, stone or any other metal with artistic creativity.

It is a fine art. On the other hand, architecture involves aesthetic appeal. Sculpture involves creative appeal. It is interesting to note that both sculpture and architecture appeal to the human mind. Palaces, churches, castles, cathedrals, hotels and office buildings are architectural creations. It is indeed encouraging to know that several architectural landmarks or wonders stand even today. They include cathedrals designed by famous architects, castles and palaces too. On the other hand, pieces of sculpture find place in museums and art galleries.

They are often fit to be exhibited in group shows or one-man shows of the artist who has created them. Buildings laden with architectural beauty cannot be displayed in exhibitions. Sculpture is made from a single piece of stone or wood or any other material for that matter. Several materials, such as stone, wood, glass, brass, steel and other metals are used in the construction of a building. In short, it can be said that several metals are used in architecture whereas, only one substance is used in the making of a sculpture.

This is a very important difference between the two words, namely, sculpture and architecture. Architecture involves the study of engineering and engineering mathematics. Sculpture involves creativity and imagination. It does not depend on measurement. On the other hand, architecture solely depends on measurement. Strength of materials plays a very important role in the construction of buildings. Texture of soil and quality of building materials used are all tested before taking up an architectural project. On the other hand, sculpture is measured by the imaginative power of the sculptor.

A building of architectural importance or beauty gains in value based upon the area in which it is built, increase in the real estate value of the place and such other factors. On the other hand, the value of the sculpture depends upon the greatness of the sculptor, its artistic representation and the message it delivers. It is indeed true that every piece of sculpture delivers some message or the other. Conclusion: Therfore I can conclude that, architecture and sculpture are very important in the growth of development of each country.

It shows only we are now highly competitive and advanced in the technology we are using. We just being evolved from a primitive period into a modernized society. As times goes by, people will not able to work since machines are being use to operate. Through many inventions that is being made there is rapid change in bringing our country to a convenient and comfortable lifestye. Moreover, architecture is important to us because people need it. The house that we live in, the office that we go to everyday, our schools, our community, all of these are created by architecture.

Architecture design our lives through the spaces that we live in. It improves and change human lifestyle. It makes us create communities, spaces to interact and to experience a new world within the confines of a structure. Architecture is an art form that influences us everyday. Sculpture is important also since we can learn many ideas to the history of every country that represents there culture and tradition through the works of art. We create using our emotion and imaginations that comes into our minds.

So we need to preserve and protect because it is the treasure which has a sentimental value to us. Indeed, art is everything. It’s impossible to look anywhere in this world and not see an artist’s creation or some aspect of art. It allows everybody to express themselves in any way necessary. Art doesn’t discriminate or stereotype or hate, it provides an outlet for all emotions under the sun. Without art, the world would be without color, design, literature, music, poetry, dance, everything.
