Has there ever been a Science in Architecture? The concept of Architectural Intelligence The purpose of architecture (design) is to create. To make things better. The purpose of science is to know. The aim of science is to know, more widely and more deeply, how all things work. The area between knowing and making is called engineering. Design tells us what to make, engineering tells us how to make it, and science guarantees the basis for judging how to make it. Since architecture is the work of creating physical entities, it is inevitable that it involves engineering. Stone is strong enough to be stacked vertically, but it is prone to splitting when it is passed horizontally to form a beam. Wood, on the other hand, cannot be stacked like stone, but it can be laid horizontally to form a long-span beam.
