Let us explore further, what is a field of architecture, and what an architect does. Well the answer to this is needs an extensive elaboration: The field of architecture is basically related to human settlement in groups & societies, where there is an involvement of Human race, architecture field comes into picture. For example, say for a human settlement, a colony planing is required, with colonies in picture means of movement/ road network is required, further to full-fill daily needs, market, shopping area, schools, entertainment, transit system, etc. are to be designed. And here comes the architect. Person with a job to plan and improve our standard of living with his planning & inputs to the overall infrastructure, with design of a small house, to colonies, to cities, office building, cultural buildings, office complexes etc. etc. The list is long, to add further “from a mere shop design to a shopping centre, and a shopping mall, entertainment theatres”

In continuation to my earlier post about the field of architecture, there is a specific difference between a designer and artist, an artist uses his brush as per his will and make different strokes on a canvas. He uses his tool as master stroke to shape his imagination. While a designer is a person who has to transform the strokes upon a live canvas giving shapes and colors to a 3d environment. Whose task is difficult? Certainly a designer's canvas. To bring imagination into a reality, to fulfill the dream into colors of 3d. What a great artist. And thy name is architect. A different profession of art to reality. I will continue to write on this subject in my further posts, be in touch.

Many people wonder about the Architecture as profession and relationship between an art & architecture, they don't know what exactly is Architecture, and what kind Art being used in the profession. (This is a very elaborated topic and will need pages after pages to discuss in detail) I (Ar. Sunil Manocha) will try to define and elaborate the topic , and also to clear the misconception and myths about this very artistic field. In a very few words the definition of architecture is “Architecture is a science which transforms an art into a reality, and gives third dimension to the Canvas”. Architect is an artist which thinks three dimensional, and transforms his thought to a beautiful reality in form of buildings, landscapes, and places to live. Contd............
