Architecture: building morale

by Bernard Ibrahim

Architecture was always been seen as an art of building a physical building.
But would it make sense when architecture can actually build more than that?

Architecture is not a stiff  skill, it adapts from time to time.
as a projection of both knowledge and ideas, architectural product have allot of impact
to both individuals and the society. many thought that architecture only serve the physical need of human: protection and space. but further then that architects pays its role.

the Kremlin, known for ages as a Russian symbol. it is not only a physical supplement to the nation, it is a symbol of pride. the majestic architectural aspects has been a cherished element for the nation. its like wearing a jewel really. you cant go taller or physically better. but it gives you suggestion, give you confident and simply make you feel better. define better: joyful, proud, content, you name it.
architecture can also build a morale, a non physical needs. the Eiffel tower also have been the symbol of pride by the French. the building that hated by several people, know loved and known as a structural art and a wonder of engineering. it is then gave the world a meeting point. People from all around the place gather and meet each other. giving a larger chance of meeting and interact. the tower also has been a relaxing place for commoners. by just standing there, it gives the people the pride, security and the feeling of “yes we can make wonder happen”.

interaction, pride, security, everything is something architects can made. they represent a nation, make a name for them, unite them. they dont just build physical building, they build morale. architects dont just made, they help people to live.

    So basically architecture is something that can unite a community where the people can come around the work that an architect has done and simply relax and rejoice in the social interactions that can be done there.

    I agree with you. An architect can design a building (physical) that can create a feeling (non physical) for the people who do their activities inside that building. I think it is about architectural psychology, how the occupant experiences a building. (Indyrra Chrisyadewi)

    what i mean here is…
    architecture does not only build a physical improvement…

    it also create the sense of… having each other
    it unites… it encourages

    and it is also beyond personal psychology but also in the sense of social behavior, how they live and reach by the stimulus that architecture have provide…

    just make it this way… by looking at the borobudur, Indonesia is united, wanting it to become the worlds wonder, people is proud knowing the ancestor has done such thing. people inspired, they are educated.
