The term 'Architecture'

The word "architecture" comes from the Latin, "architectura" and ultimately from Greek,"arkitekton". The term can be used to connote the implied architecture of mathematics or of abstract things such as music, the apparent architecture of natural things, such as geological formations or the structure of biological cells, or explicitly planned architectures of human-made things such as software, computers, enterprises, and databases, in addition to buildings.

We connected the term architecture with physical structure of buildings, houses and others. Its the science of designing, the art to create original forms, colors and shapes. A wider definition often includes the architectural design of the total built environment, from the macro level of how a building integrates with its surrounding manmade landscape.
The term "Architecture" is also used for the profession of providing architectural services and advices.

The authors we called architects. Architects are primarily driven by the creative manipulation of mass, space, volume, texture, light, shadow, materials, program, and pragmatic elements such as cost, construction and technology, in order to achieve an end which is aesthetic, functional and often artistic. As people move through a space, architecture is experienced as a time sequence. Even though our culture considers architecture to be a visual experience, the other senses play a role in how we experience both natural and built environments and ofcourse the design process begins by the architects view and personal experience.
