# The Science Behind it

So, you may be wondering, how is Architecture realted to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)?

Well all four terms are defined but in different ways.

## Science

Architecture is related to Science by The Scientific method which is used by Architects to research and develop concepts on myriad levels required to create buildings. Architecture is the art and science of designing buildings and structures.

## Technonolgy

Architectural technology is related to the different elements of a building and their interactions, and is closely aligned with advances in building science. Architects use Computer Software to do blue prints and drawings to make online. CADD software enables architects to sketch, measure, draft and layout their designs to create 3D representations of future buildings on a computer.

## Engineering

An architect designs and draws up plans for buildings, bridges, and other structures. Architects design a structure by considering the customer's needs and requirements. Engineers design the structure according to the architect's design, including electrical drawings, structural layout and plumbing. Achitectural engineer may refer to: An engineer in the structural, mechanical, electrical, construction or other engineering fields of building design and construction.

## Mathematics

Architects use mathematics for several reasons, leaving aside the necessary use of mathematics in the engineering of buildings. Firstly, they use geometry because it defines the spatial form of a building. ... Thirdly, they may use mathematical objects such as tessellations to decorate buildings. Architects use Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry and some Calculas to figure out measurments and height and width and other measurements that they will need.
