One should not eat before going to bed, and I inadvertently ate a piece of cherry pie before climbing into bed. Like the boy from the old comic strip "Little Nemo in Dreamland," I began to dream of faraway places and wonders of some kind not of this world. So I dreamed of a new player on the political scene of a certain Eastern European republic. [...]

architecture

Architecture is the art of designing and building spatial forms and shaping the space between them. According to Vitruvius, author of the treatise "On Architecture of Books Ten," the basic principles of designing and constructing buildings are durability, utility and beauty.

Architecture provides a framework for living, working, learning and entertaining. The history of architecture is also the history of human civilization. It has shaped and changed over the centuries in accordance with the needs, current trends and available technological solutions. To this day, we can marvel at the elements of architecture of ancient cultures, admire the dominant styles in different centuries and see the diversity in architecture in different parts of the world.
