“Architecture is about trying to make the world a little bit more like our dreams” 

– Bjarke Ingels

Any change in architectural styles can be based on declarations that come from social change and have been influenced by ancient philosophers and scientists. Cultural attributions today have an accompanying effect on architecture in response to political and economical aspects. In the architecture today, there is skepticism and ambiguity there is a dialogue between the static-dynamic and the living. Architecture holds the power to change the world, to change thoughts, and create positive changes that aid in development. Architecture shapes the environment, the home that we live in it doesn’t just design a house but a place we call home.

A structural building to people of the sciences and a form of sculpture for the artists. Its diverse meaning in different eyes is what makes it so exceptional. When a project is initiated the current state of the environment will change. Any change happens to devise for the better it is changing the notion of civilization which was the adverse approximately 1000 years back. These pieces of architecture hold expressions they speak of, generate an idea, and create a notion. Architecture affects our work, the people, the homes, and on, a whole the relationship we have with the rest of the world. The journey in architecture helps us to progress as people and it changes the way our mind works. It helps us to think clearly and do better for society it, aids in the quality of our lives. As the world grows, we evolve and, we must because that is the way of life, our perceptions must change and hence changing the conditions of the world. 

The space that people reside in is the most prominent for any human because they are the only inhabitants of it. A good, quality environment must be important not only for the home we live in but for every infrastructure project. Architecture has its own identity, a form of culture. Technology advances and our roots get stronger, these two are now going hand in hand. Cultures were separated, before societal architecture, but now it is bringing us closer. It is making us live together, discuss ideas, and grow. The speed of life today’s fast-paced. Traditional roots, societal notions, and our thinking. These chaotic factors are surprisingly working together, practicing to excel beyond all costs. People are learning to correlate to space, work with time, think about the culture, and improve their life. With all going on, architects need to think, for the future they need to position themselves in the shoes of the future generations. They understand what would be the needs and wants, they need to interpret and recognize. Architects must decipher and corporate design for efficiency and effectiveness to prolong for a pragmatic period.

These same architects carry responsibilities; they are the decision-makers of what will happen to the future; they are the ones to shape the future, the world they are the ones to give us an experience of a lifetime. Architecture needs a framework it needs to be built for the people because architecture requires inhabitants or else it is static, unlike dynamic people. Thoughtful architecture raises the human character, but bad design can push one to the ground. Architects and designers are under tremendous pressure on how they must cope with the rapid growth and change, how their designs can be fit and yet stand out. They are always thinking about how they can create an entourage that is enduring and compliant to support us. Too many questions and such statements the answer lies in connecting the main constituents. Architects need to work together with all its accomplices; it needs to show people that if there is a race, it needs effort and collaboration. Every portrayal will define who we are and what determines the context. 

For reference to all that has been spoken about, there are real-life examples that seem to just reflect on all our thoughts and feelings. A few are mentioned below.

Foundation Louis Vuitton by Frank Gehry

For this beautiful classic, Frank Gehry was inspired by 19th-century designs. He wanted to add more to the current site Bois De Boulogne and adding a glass structure would only enhance the place, so he did. There is an infinite movement between glass and solid for a museum and it has a function.

432 Park Avenue by Rafael Viñoly 

The tallest built residential building in the western hemisphere. A domineering skyscraper in the New York skyline, seen from every angle even by cars or trains. Rafael mentions that for creating such an architecture, he needed it to be timeless and ever-growing. People have their perception about its facade, some say the minimal strikes but, from some, it is rather plain.

Louvre Abu Dhabi by Jean Nouvel 

The United Arab Emirates can be observed as a place for the Arab Renaissance, but the Louvre is a paradigm breaker in the movement. It highlights a dome constructed by steel and aluminum which plays with light and shadow on the interior. The construction took almost eight years and it has now become a central spot for people from all over the world.
