Well, I would say that architecture is some form of "big picture design". But I have seen so many discussions on this topic (let alone on the definitions of architecture or design alone) that I don't think there will ever be any agreement on a more specific definition... :roll:


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
