The data captured provides a three dimensional coordinate system, defined by X, Y and Z coordinates which represent hundreds of…

Important Architecture

Architecture is an expression of the true strength of a society because the things humans value most are those that are irrevocable, according to G. K. Chesterton. Unlike other forms of art, architecture lies in full view and is difficult to get rid of. Architecture is a relatively permanent expression of how society as a whole sees itself and how it views the environment, and it can serve as a time capsule of human history and human thought. It is a powerful reflection of human culture. Architecture is part art and part science. As an art, it provides…

Mackintosh, Artist

Reason informed by emotion - expressed in beauty - elevated by earnestness - lightened by humour - that is the ideal that should guide all artists. Charles Rennie Mackintosh, architect, designer and artist, is an even more enigmatic figure today than when he was alive.
