Day 3 Reflections by He Shiying

EQ1: What is architecture

Architecture is an art at which is showcased or expressed through designs of buildings and structures

EQ2: What are the essential considerations when one architects a building/structure?

The essential conditions would include the space the structure would take up, the basic materials necessary to build the structure, the time it would take to build the structure as well as the different rooms or separate spaces used for different purposes which require different layouts and  are of special and specific designs. The design of the buildings also have to bring out the 'essence' and purpose. 

The colour and materials used in the church had to be taken into consideration and architects would have to make sure they were getting the correct materials.

Certain buildings have certain features that allow water/ rain to flow from the roof
