1 Introduction | Architecture
Architecture is more than just being the science of home design. It is not just about the length of lines, the way houses should be built, the number of floors or rooms to make, and the strategic location of the house you are going to design. Architecture is an art. To become a successful architect means to make use of the knowledge of how the history of human civilization has shaped the way we live, and in effect, the shape of the homes in which we live.
This book was specifically made with the fledgling architect in mind, thoroughly discussing everything that an architect should know, from the history of architectural development to the different types of lines and tools needed in order to create architectural masterpieces. It arms architects-to-be and architect wannabes with the basic skills and knowledge required of every single architect in the world.
