This blog post discusses the differences and similarities between architecture and civil engineering. It explains that until modern times, there was no clear distinction between the two professions, and that civil engineering was so broad that it encompassed architecture. The duties of an architect and a civil engineer are comparable, with both having a lot of similarities. An architect specializes in buildings and their spaces, while a civil engineer specializes in infrastructures.
In this post, I discussed the debate about whether architects are considered artists or engineers. I explained that architects have a wider range of responsibilities that often overlap with those of engineers, and that architectural design involves creative or artistic expression. I also mentioned that the definition of architecture includes both art and science. I concluded that architecture is a combination of both art and engineering.
