Architecture is everywhere. As beings we have no choice but to look at it. Like it or not we are completely engaged on the built environment. Our world is caught in the middle of a revolution. We continue to advance in technology which allows us to keep moving forward in architecture. It is kind of satirical because now...of all times, we are trying to find ways to connect back to nature. I think that we are way too advanced to ever reach back far enough to bond with nature, and live the way people did before. But thatâ€™s beyond the point. In my perspective, architecture can be defined from the basic elements of art. Which are, line, shape, form, color, value, texture, and space. Each one of these elements is personally related to the architect. The architect has total control of the structure; he/she can imagine and create their thoughts. After the structure is constructed we observe the building and comprehend it by a certain feeling we attain.
I think that architecture has a massive effect on every individualâ€™s life and how they live it. For me, I have a love for art. So one way I connect to architecture is through the basic principles of art. I break down the complex form of a structure to each distinct line, form and shape. By doing this it improves my understanding of the building, and I feel an optimistic passion for architecture...I could stair at a building for hours on end, trying to figure out how and why it was built that way.
Architecture can be seen as clockwork because of its cyclical movement. It starts with basic forms, and then gets increasingly complex and complicated until we decide we need to go back to simple forms that connect with nature.
I feel that architecture itself is a form of phenomena. Contained in architecture are origins, destinations, boundaries, duration, hierarchies, change, and behavioral characteristics. For example, the duration of architecture is elucidated through how long the structure lifetime is, maybe forever, or only a few months. Another example is its behavioral characteristics. Architecture adapts to characteristics that we adapt to ourselves. A structure can hold characteristics that contain the stableness, chaotic, beauty, vibrancy, and special effects.
The need of oppositions in architecture is required for success. The six oppositions which include man vs. physical nature, climate and enclosure, gravity, permanence, mass and form, and materials and tools, are the underlying rules that are mandatory to make architecture satisfactory. Gravity is an interesting opposition; this is because to create anything, we need to understand every aspect of it. The opposition of mass and form is necessary, obviously, because without mass or form it would be impossible for a structure to exist. I think that being creative with mass and form in a building can be perceived as brilliantly aesthetic.
My passion for architecture is being built upon everyday. Visually I can attain sublime emotions through line, form, shape, texture, and color. The world is an amazing place. This may soundâ€¦I donâ€™t knowâ€¦â€?perfectly inspirationalâ€?â€¦but really. Life is way to short to be wasting time. Once you find your passion, rather it be architecture, music, or even scuba diving, your life will come together, and youâ€™ll realize what youâ€™ve been missing, and it will inspire you to move forward with concentration on whatever it is. This may sound extremely irrelevant and confusing to this topic, but just hear me outâ€¦once you find your passion, life will become so much more and youâ€™ll understand that it is truly hard to explain.
