Play, rituals, and other artistic things book
It is of course axiomatic among architects that their discipline is considered an art.
It is one of the very cornerstones of architectural training, and the history of
architecture offers an impressive survey of remarkable productions of undisputed
merit. In nearly every culture and era, architects have been exalted for their
structural ingenuity and creative talents, and within some of the more transfixing
moments of artistic achievement, such as Greek antiquity and the European
Renaissance, artists of every persuasion have sought to associate themselves in
some way with the art of building. Nearly everyone will agree that architecture is
an inventive craft, culturally on a par with the great productions of musical
composers, dramatists, sculptors, painters, and literary figures.
