Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.
For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.
