My Manifesto on Architecture

                What is architecture? It is art and science of design and erecting buildings and other physical structures. Architecture means to often on render professional services in connection with the design construction of a building, on group of buildings and the space within the site surrounding the buildings that have as their principal purpose human occupancy on use. Understanding architecture means that, when one looks at a building, however complex it may be, one tries to visualize the relationship between the volumes that comprise it. Its means seeking to grasp the may its elements are interlinked, for it is this that determines the structure of every building. Above all it means going back to its plan. Viewing a building particularly if it is a complicated one without having previously seen a plan of it may convey on impression of chaos. The place seems to be courtyards, different levels, and so on. The artwork of architects is very meaningful. Because architects can express their emotion in drawing or express their passion to their artwork to makes realistic. Architects had own decision, it’s not depend on the design of other architect because if they copy the work of the other, they cannot call an artist.

The architect should be equipped with knowledge of many branches of study and varied kinds of learn, for it is by his judgment that all work done by the other art is put to test. This knowledge is the child of practice the theory. Practice is the continuous and regular exercise of employment where manual work is done with many necessary materials according to the design of a drawing. Theory, on the other hand, is the ability to demonstrate and explain the production of dexterity on the principles of proportion.

In production of architecture a major source of style is design process itself, and hence the heuristic reasoning processes involved play a central role. Style is usually attributed to a building according to its features. As shown is preceding section, these features, or final manifestation of a design process, are strongly determinate by the classes of heuristics adopted, their use and integration, and the sequence in which the overall process unfolds. It is not only the structure of the process that is important but also the object qualities of the models that are used.

Everyone wishing to understand the work of architecture. Then, must learn to discipline and read the plan, but what does this give him? It may reveal a wide variety of aspects depending on the type of organization adopted which in term detectives how strict the system will be. Only elevation and section can explain the passage from the plan to volume and space. Only elevation and section can explain the passage from the plan to volume and space. The step into the third dimension is important reading the plan, for it is this that gives a piece of architecture its identity.

Building is not a profession for the lone individualist. Writers, artists and to a certain extent composers and sculptors, can do most of their work alone in the studio, but architects depend on the cooperation of many other people/clients, construction, builders, engineers, officials, financing, experts and real estate agents. And if they want to communicate same special message with their work, they have to explain it to all concerned.

It’s good to be a control freak. Because the optic is the heart and soul every percolate architecture down light, we like to control the quality of our reflections ourselves. In like most other manufactures, percolates reflections are still hand spun and finished by experience craftsmen.

Improve an architecture business by proving a more complete may to think about buildings, from the design thought construction. With Autodesk, AutoCAD, Rivet, building software, design tears achieve superior documentation, more effective design coordination, and more. So client are happy, you get more repeat business, and you’re more profitable. Because it’s crated specifically for building information modeling, design buildings and work process with Rivet building can help you realize your idea to complete and win.

To make design of a building it is depend on: climate of the place/site, where it’s locate and etc. it is very important to know the information of the location. Because can you can estimate the place, if you’ rebuilding are located in the middle of the residential area, and you don’t know located. The design in you’re building are not to fit to your concepts, you’re design in the building can be use. You will not represent you’re main idea or not to show the meaning of your design.

In the Philippines, the architecture is a reflection of the history and heritage of the country. The architects in the Philippines are not like in the architects in the other country. But there lots of Pilipino architects in the other country are discovered. Like the bahay na bato it is the first house. While the year goes by the knowledge of the people are developing. So, they adopt their skills to build modern houses. In this era, the nipa hut or bahay kubo gave way to the Bahay na bato (stone house) and became the typical house of noble Filipinos. The Bahay na bato, the colonial Filipino house, followed the nipa hut’s arrangements such as open ventilation and elevated apartments. The most obvious difference between the two houses would be the materials that were used to build them. The bahay na bato was constructed out of brick and stone rather than the traditional bamboo materials. It is a mixture of native Filipino, Spanish and Chinese influences. Excellent preserved examples of these houses of the illustrious Filipinos can be admired in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. In Taal, Batangas, the main street is also lined with examples of the traditional Filipino homes. Bahay kubo mansion, In May 2008, National artist for architecture Francisco Mañosa, designer of the [[Coconut Palace, built his own two-storey Bahay Kubo mansion in Ayala Alabang Village, a wealthy suburb south of Manila. With only 3 posts or “haligi”, it has five one-inch coconut shell doors, a “silong” , Muslim room, sala, and master’s bedroom with a fish pond therein. Antipolo church, the image of “Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage” has been venerated in the church of Antipolo for centuries. The old church that housed the virgin was destroyed in February 1945 when the Americans bombed Antipolo as part of the liberation campaign of Manila. In 1954, a new church was built designed by the renowned Filipino architect Jose de Ocampo. This church is of a cupolaed design centered on the image of the Virgin. It functions as the center point of the pilgrimages to Antipolo. Intramuros is the old walled city of Manila located along the southern bank of the Pasig River. The historic city was home to centuries-old churches, schools, convents, government buildings and residences, the best collection of Spanish colonial architecture before much of it was destroyed by the bombs of World War II. Of all the buildings within the 67-acre city, only one building, the San Agustin Church, survived the war. Fort Santiago (Fuerza de Santiago) is a defense fortress established by Spanish conquistador, Miguel López de Legazpi. The fort is the citadel of the walled city of Intramuros, in Manila, Philippines.The location of Fort Santiago was also once the site of the palace and kingdom of Rajah Suliman, chieftain of Manila of pre-Spanish era. It was destroyed by the conquistadors upon arriving in 1570, encountering several bloody battles with the Muslims and native Tagalogs. The Spaniards destroyed the native settlements and erected Fuerza de Santiago in 1571.Paco Park was planned as a municipal cemetery for the well-off and established aristocratic Spanish families who resided in the old Manila, or Intramuros. The cemetery is circular in shape, with an inner circular fort that was the original cemetery with niches on the hollow walls. As the population continued to grow, a similar second outer wall was built with the thick adobe hollow walls with niches, the top of the walls made into a walkway circumnavigating the park. A Roman Catholic chapel was built inside the inner walls, dedicated to St. Pancratius. The order of the Augustinians, Augustinian Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus of the Philippines, build many churches all over the Philippines. These magnificent structures can still be found all over the Philippine Islands.The San Agustin Church in Paoay, Ilocos Norte, is the most famous of these churches. This unique specimen of Filipino architecture from the Spanish area has been included in the World Heritage Sites List of the UNESCO. The church was built by the Augustinian friars from 1694 until 1710.It shows the earthquake proof baroque style architecture.San Agustín Church and Monastery, built between 1587 and 1606, is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines, and the only building left intact after the destruction of Intramuros during the Battle of Manila (1945). The present structure is actually the third to stand on the site and has survived seven major earthquakes, as well as the wars in Manila. The church remains under the care of the Augustinians who founded it.The San Agustín Church lies inside the walled city of Intramuros located in the capital city Manila, Philippines. It is the first European stone church to be built in the Philippines designed in Spanish architectural structure. The church also houses the legacies of the Spanish conquistadors, Miguel López de Legazpi, Juan de Salcedo and Martín de Goiti who are buried and laid to rest in a tomb, underneath the church.The church has 14 side chapels and a trompe-l’oeil ceiling. Up in the choir loft are the hand-carved 17th-century seats of molave, a beautiful tropical hardwood. Adjacent to the church is a small museum run by the Augustinian order, featuring antique vestments, colonial furniture, and religious paintings and icons.Together with three other ancient churches in the country, it was designated as part of the World Heritage SiteBaroque Churches of the Philippines” in 1993. So, that you can see the Pilipino is very creativity.
