Architecture is the context for civic life.
The built environment remains the physical framework society has no choice but to share. In an age of increasingly rapid technological and social change, architects must find ways to forge connections between our past and our future. Such a task involves critical thinking about many complex contemporary issues, such as the relationship of public and private life, the interaction between formal and political ideas in cities, and the role of technology in contemporary architecture and design thinking. Because the process of designing buildings is one that involves synthesis of disparate factors, it can also translate into strategies for approaching a wide range of other problems not traditionally understood to be "architecture". At Northeastern we connect specific problem solving inherent to architectural understanding with the larger context of contemporary cities.
