Role of Architecture in Today’s Society

Humanity as a whole is only mortal but our wish to become eternal is succeeded as we leave immortal echoes through its history using the media of language, art, knowledge and architecture. Culture is experienced in the present time and defines our experience of living. Architecture has persisted as one of the most profoundly important reflections of culture throughout time. Architecture also persists through our infrastructure from bridges to public spaces and even the very layout of our cities themselves. Architects in a way define and dictate the world around us. They respond to the environment and manipulate it for their works and needs. Here in Sigma College of Architecture, one of the top Architecture Colleges in Tamil Nadu we follow the immortal words of Plato “the ‘things’ of our world are reflections or shadows of eternal Forms or Ideas, which do not exist in space or time, but outside of it”
