What is Architecture?

According to the University of Arkansas's Department of Architecture, "the Fay Jones School of Architecture enjoys a national reputation for producing outstanding designers who are well prepared for professional practice. We emphasize drawing as a tool for seeing, and many of our students excel in hand rendering, something of a lost art in the age of digital design."
