Abstract

Architecture is one of the oldest professions of the world. It makes possible to generate shelters which are satisfying the unavoidable necessity of surviving for human beings. When the main subject area of architecture is a simple shelter, like an igloo, the user also acts like an architect and design for her/himself. However, with changing life styles and developing technologies, expectations from shelters have increased and this increase generated the need for an architect. Architecture is based on the architectural design process. Architectural design leans on both tangible elements like; materials, structure, construction, cost, etc. and intangible elements like; psychology, time, space, etc.
