All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable. (Frank Lloyd Wright)

Architects are the unsung heroes of buildings. Working quietly behind the
scenes, they design the beauty and functionality of homes, hospitals, houses of
worship, schools, stores, theaters, museums, and skyscrapers. With
imagination,
creativity, and precision, architects convert empty space into rooms, ergonomic
furniture, artwork, atria, cathedral ceilings, clerestory windows, stained glass,
skylights, and landscaping. So let’s celebrate the magic of architecture and
incorporate all of its beauty and functionality into our lives.
