Architecture as Art

Is a building art?  In my mind it can be!

I once heard that architecture bridges the gap between science and art. Although I would not have a clue about how to build a structure, I do find them rather interesting. Why did they choose that form?

Why did they pick those windows and not……

Where did they get that idea? So many choices;

elevation, form, material, function, access……….

Fresno is filled with a collection of impressive historic structures and internationally renowned contemporary buildings. From Neo-classical mid-rise offices to the distinctive City Hall, our unique skyline evolves.
