  12. 12. WHAT IS ARCHITECTURE? Architecture is the imaginative blend of art and science in the design of environments for people.
  13. 13. WHAT DO ARCHITECTS DO? Transform the needs of people into concepts and then develop these concepts into building images that can be constructed by others. Communicate between and assist those who have needs (clients, users, the public) and those who will make the spaces that satisfy the needs (builders and contractors) Provide professional services -- ideas and insights, design and technical knowledge, drawings and specifications, administration, coordination, and informed decision-making -- that balance a range of factors into a coherent and appropriate solution for the needs at hand.

  21. 21. PREPARATION TO BE AN ARCHITECT Explore your own environment -- house, school and community Learn to “see” buildings, spaces, and their relationships Notice the effects of color, texture, light and shape -- the tools of architecture Consider how spaces and places “feel” when you are in them. Think about values expressed in the design of your house, school, city hall. Look for rhythm and pattern, simplicity, and ornament, old and new in your environment.
  22. 22. WHAT TO DO IN HIGH SCHOOL Plan a college preparatory program strong in English, history, social studies, mathematics, and physics. Take courses in art, design or other creative courses and avoid drafting courses. Visit the design studio of an architecture school, tour an architect’s office, and read books and magazines on architecture. Attend one of many summer programs offered by architecture schools targeted to high school students.
