“Architecture” can mean:

  • The art and science of designing and erecting buildings and other physical structures.
  • The style and method of design and construction of buildings and other physical structures.
  • The practice of the architect, where architecture means the offering or rendering of professional services in connection with the design and construction of buildings, or built environments.[1]
