More than just physical structures, architecture captures the character, culture, and spirit of a nation. Cities and communities risk losing the character and aesthetics that make them unique when architectural designs overlook the local environment. Many people today are drawn to imitate Western fashions or adopt modernity at the price of their own culture and traditions.
Cultural Identity Loss
The cultural identity of a town is greatly impacted when architecture is constructed without consideration for the surrounding environment. People become disconnected from their ancestors’ customs and local history, which results in a loss of sense of self and belonging. Culture and traditions should be preserved through architecture, not destroyed.
Traditions and Modern Design Respected
In the field of architecture, tradition and modernity can coexist harmoniously. Successful projects all across the world demonstrate how traditional components can be incorporated with modern styles. Architecture can find a balance between innovation and tradition when the local setting serves as inspiration.
Local and international cooperation
Collaboration between regional and international architects can speed up the sharing of knowledge and insights, resulting in designs that meld tradition with contemporary. A global language that unites locations and cultures, expressing the richness of diversity while embracing the future, should be architecture.
