Architecture

Architecture involves the design and structure of buildings.  Architects design both residential and commercial structures of all sorts.  
Archtecture is a formal field of study at many universities, and, in most states, requires a license in order to practice.  In addition to undergraduate degrees in architecture, many schools also offer graduate degrees in architecture.
This page provides a number of resources to help you discover the field of architecture and learn more about becoming an architect.  If you are already an architect, there are a number of resources to help you expand your expertise.

"Clean Lines, Open Spaces: A View of Mid-Century Modern Architecture," a new documentary produced by AETN's Mark Wilcken, focuses on the construction boom in the United States after World War II. Sometimes considered cold and unattractive, mid-century modern designs were a by-product of post-war optimism and reflected a nation's dedication to building a new future. This new architecture used modern materials such as reinforced concrete, glass and steel and was defined by clean lines, simple shapes and unornamented facades.

The documentary looks at examples of mid-century modern architecture around the state, from the University of Arkansas's Fine Arts Center designed by Arkansas native and internationally known architect Edward Durell Stone to the Tower Building in Little Rock, the Fulbright Library in Fayetteville that reflects the aesthetics of famous Chicago architect Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, and the abandoned Hotel Mountainaire, perfectly defining art moderne.
