What is architecture?
Architecture, by definition, is The Arts of Construction (Speech by Dr. Prawet Limparangsee, National Artist) Here, I would like to explain more that architecture consists of the main parts. Two parts are on the subject of
- Science of Construction
- Science of Art
The reason why it has been described like this is that construction is so good and regarded as an architecture work must have a combination of both science and art. (If you look back at the description of Vitruvius in the first article, it will be the same.)
Therefore, the construction of some buildings may not have a mixture of art, that is, built for functionality and strong enough. If there were only two of those parts, then all three of them were not fulfilled as Vitruvius had said. But it’s a usable building. It is considered normal building or construction work. but it cannot be called “architecture”
Beauty, satisfaction, provocation, or emotion. (that is, affecting the feeling) is the key element that makes the building feel like life. because it responds to the perception of people who use the building most of the things that contribute to this feeling are The wisdom that the designer must carefully meditate on. and then inscribes the spirit into the work based on cultural context or perception to create an understanding of the values and beauty that society accepts In which the author would like to summarize the tools that have been put into the design to have the spirit described above as “culture”.
Such culture is not as ancient and archaic as many people think, but culture is social dynamics. that changes according to the era, so good architecture So there is a spirit that tells a cultural story. in connection with the unfolding society became something in it. which may be a historical link dating Until the era when that architecture was built, or it could be a presentation of the modernity that society is Because this tool of communication is related to the arts. or the science of art The designer, therefore, has to look at the work that is holistic that will coordinate the content that needs to be communicated with the usability, strength, and homogeneity. If the designer does not understand This can become turbocharged, torn, or even a burden on construction.
Although architecture can be a science of art. But it’s not a job that can be kept and viewed alone. and each work stood for generations. And will affect the thoughts and feelings of the people who have seen and especially have used in that building. A creatively designed building with good functionality. Strength and beauty, responsible for life and society. Therefore, it has been upgraded from a normal “building”. to become a job Good “architecture” is friendly to people and society in the end.
Hope you have good architecture. your favorite and be happy every time you visit.
