The roots of architecture exist to create the physical environment in which people live, but architecture is more than just the built environment, it's also a part of our culture. It stands as a representation of how we see ourselves, as well as how we see the world. As populations and sea levels rise, architecture holds the key to the future of living on our planet. Architecture is the solution to poverty, overcrowding, and land depletion. New technology in the field of architecture will ensure humans can in fact still live on earth.
