Humanity leaves immortal echoes through its history in the form of language, art and architecture. These echoes are not simply to be viewed in retrospect rather this tradition achieves new forms of beauty in the hands of individuals. Thus, Architecture is a connection with the immortal past, yet revitalizing it for the new generation. The architects are the arbiters of our future history. Whether we consider the monumental structures like Taj Mahal or the modern icons like Sydney Opera House, each work telling the story of its creation. It is man’s instinct desire to innovate, decorate, create and materialize the impossible dreams. Architecture is also a melting pot of various disciplines. When we study Architecture, we also get to study various fields of human endeavor, including Design, Art, History, Construction, Material Science, Physics and Engineering.
