Evolution of Architecture: How traditional and modern ideologies affect our well-being




Architecture is a passion, a vocation, a call, form of social integration and interaction between a person to its environment along with a science and a business. It has been described as a social art that has evolved with the passage of time and revolutionized human's life and ways of living (Ockman, 1985, pp.121) . It must be the expression of the design at its best. Architecture provides strength, utility and beauty as described by Marcus Vitruvius. Architecture provides a sense of belonging and supports in all spheres of human activity. It promotes the harmonious integration of human creations to the environment, while promoting health and well-being, enriching lives in terms of aesthetics and spirituality, offering development opportunities. On the other hand it also creates economic well being and creates a legacy that reflects and symbolizes the culture and traditions (Moore & Isen, 1990, pp.41).

The story of the architectural evolution and the role played by architecture in the well being of human can never be ignored. A healthy lining can promote a healthy life. The purpose of the design, renovation and construction of a building is to achieve optimum consistency with its environment and thus comply with fundamental aspects of any intervention in an environment by an architect (Magretta, 1997, pp.31). Victor Horta,defined psychology of space as "the study of people's behavior in the built environment."
