Wojciech Odrobina Why is good architecture important?

Many may think of architecture as a frivolous activity, of a certain elite, but I am going to show you here why architecture is important to all of us.

On a basic level, architecture is important to society because it provides the physical environment in which we live. At a deeper level, architecture provides an expression of human civilization in time, which then remains, as in the case of monuments, for study by future generations.

Architecture is an expression of the true strength of a society, because the things that humans value the most are those that are almost irrevocable, almost "forever".

Unlike other forms of art, architecture is visible and it is difficult to get rid of it, it surrounds us when we walk through the cities of the world. Architecture is a relatively permanent expression of how society views itself as a whole. It is a powerful reflection of human culture.

Architecture is part art and part science. A mixture of reason and emotion is always present in good architecture. As art it provides a form of creative expression that leads society to look at its living space and the environment in general in different ways. At the same time, good architecture meets the functional needs of society.

Why is good architecture important for the environment?

Because the world's population is growing rapidly, with a latest estimate of reaching 10 billion by 2050, if China and India continue at the current rate. At the same time that the population is growing, it is also urbanizing.

This process is a huge challenge for humanity and the environment. However, it also presents itself as a great opportunity for greater sustainability if we do it right. Architecture plays a fundamental role in the shape of houses and therefore in the life of all populations. If we design our cities well we can reduce the need for long trips every day to go to school or buy bread.

If we design our buildings well, so that they provide energy instead of consuming it, we will be more sustainable and we will also be able to keep the options open for a future.

Why is architecture important for health?

Urban architecture and design have a direct impact on our health in several ways. Firstly, it affects our physical activity. People can be encouraged to go on foot or by bicycle, as a regular means of transportation, as long as the design of the city allows this to be done safely and conveniently.

And why is this important? Because regular physical activity is good for preventing a variety of medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even mental illness. Good architecture can also reduce occupational health problems.

Stress can be reduced and mental health improves by ensuring that, where possible, users of a workspace can have direct control over the site.

For example, simply allowing people to open windows and adjust lighting contributes to a more harmonious workspace and noticeably improves health by not having to be forced to always be in bright light or under the harmful effects of air conditioning.

The need for sustainable urban planning  Urban planning has as one of its main functions to regulate the orderly growth of the city. Where is the city planning? In the Urban Development Master Plan.   The lack of sustainable urban planning, the lack of control of urbanization and the disorderly incorporation of land generate more and more remote housing developments, creating transfers that require more time and more transport. Another reason why urban planning is essential is that local governments can make improvements in many different ways. By managing an urban territory effectively, it contributes to the sustainability of the cities' environment. Population and housing growth projections show that it is necessary to review existing planning instruments in the city and apply other urban control instruments. The reality has been that the intense social demands of recent decades, real estate interests, among others, have far exceeded conventional urban planning, aime

Wojciech Odrobina - The most successful architecture styles today

The most successful architecture styles today Architecture styles have their most successful moments that define periods and long periods. Like fashion, they are also cyclic. Although they are partially. Architecture styles tend to borrow elements from the past, but at the same time go towards a creative and innovative future. Architecture styles that currently succeed: These are the styles that are most carried out for their functionality, design or style that leads to an architectural globalization. Deconstructivist style: This style attracts a lot of attention even today. It goes out of what is considered a more traditional style or that has always been used in part because of the irregular shape it achieves and that attracts the human eye. From always, in spite of the changes in the forms of the buildings, a symmetry and a harmony were looked for. This style no. Look for sloping walls and extravagant angles. The materials used depend on the architect in charge of th
