What is Architecture?

Architectureis an Art, a vocation; it is also a science, a business, and a passion for life. Helping the man-made harmonise with its surrounding environment, Architects create a legacy for future generations that embody the culture and traditions of an era. This professional pathway is ideal for creative people with sensitivity, imagination, and an ability to appreciate the technical aspects of building and construction.

An Architect is ultimately responsible for determining the aesthetics and functionality of the living environment; therefore, it is essential that an architectural education develops attributes in students which incorporate knowledge, skills and sensitivity. These skills will be imparted and diligently assessed during the course of your architectural journey at SLIIT.
