The ideal building has three elements: it is sturdy, useful, and beautiful. Architecture plays a key role in shaping our environment. Covering ancient and modern architecture from across the world, we will examine buildings to reveal what lies behind their design, and appreciate the ideas that underpin the concept of architecture, adopting a thematic approach that deals in turn with the functions, the meanings, the structural and the social aspects of buildings.
