Architecture and Design Technology


Right in the heart of creativity and technology lies architecture. Both a social art and a technical science, architecture is the designing and construction of physical structures in their simplest form. From local parks to the tallest skyscrapers, architects have key roles in building our communities and have the power to impact millions of people's daily lives.
