Exterior design is better known as Architecture. The definition of Architecture has always been complex and elusive, but I’ll give it a shot. For me, architecture is the process by which a space is defined and created. Essentially, architects do not only “build” walls (I’m using walls as an example, but it could be many different elements), we use walls to create spaces that are hopefully imbued with a sense of place. In order to do this, we must have an understanding of both the physical aspects that govern the construction of a wall and the psychological effects that placing that kind of wall in that particular place will have on a person. In a sense, we are trapped between two worlds, with one foot (hopefully) grounded in construction and physics, and another foot on the cloudy dreamscape of an artistic endeavor.
