Architecture and Aesthetics

People incorporated natural characteristics in all branches and areas of activity. Especially in the understanding of the beautiful. Beauty becomes the main measure of things and tastes. Men also gave the forms of the beautiful to all his creations. Architecture adjusts to the functional needs of man, production and climate. Buildings have a geometry stamp as an understanding of strict and regular lines. Because they are the result of the conviction that the order is an inevitable need of community and society.

What is aesthetics

Architecture involves planning, designing, creating, and constructing. Various types of buildings have to be functional and viable. Yet, they must be pleasing in an aesthetic way. The two most important factors in the design of a building are Form and Function. Functionality is the main aspect of building design. The form is aesthetics.

Aesthetics is the branch of philosophy that deals with the expression of beauty. Such expression is individual, everybody sees with different eyes. In the Architectural context, aesthetics is one of the major principles. It concerns with finesse. In other words, it is a philosophy behind a pleasing appearance.

Influence of personal taste

Any designer can master the philosophy of aesthetics if he follows proportion, symmetry, balance, contrast, pattern and decoration. Yet, aesthetics is very much influenced by the artistic taste of an individual. It is also subjective. Aesthetics brings art and pleasure into the daily lives of the people. We like to live and work in places that make us feel joy and bliss.

The aesthetic aspects of a building can be met through special details. Such as sloped roof, decorative columns and roofs for window elements. Or semicircular and segmental arches. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. It is a perception of the person viewing them. If your design is functional and good, and the client likes it, then you don’t need to worry about anything.
