One specific teacher really helped me get through the school year, giving me support and advice when I first moved. The sense of not feeling alone allowed me to grow as both a student and a person. This school has…

I was afraid of what they would think of me. I d set aside a…

Architecture schools in virginia

Architecture enriches our lives by offering us environments that are sensibly compelling, thought provoking, and capable of lifting our spirits. In addition to being beautiful, architecture is, by ancient definition, functional and durable. Like art, architecture is permeated by dualities. It is stable and transitory, measurable and immeasurable, and capable of both being touched and touching us. Like science, architecture involves systematic study. Its methods are iterative, experimental, and rely on intense observation. By intertwining the poetic and practical, architecture…
