Architecture profession is about the process of designing spaces that enhance cultural, social, and aesthetic values of the society. In this age of advanced information and communication technologies, architecture is also being transformed.
Architectural creativity is now expressed not only through computer aided drawings but also through other digital and computational studies in which augmented reality is pushing the boundaries of design thinking and building. Sustainability as a principle is integrated into material choices and building systems. Natural forms provide inspiration for biomimetic design.
