Education

Architecture

Historically, architecture education was considered a technical training. The public did not recognize the difference between architect and engineer. During the Cultural Revolution, architectural education merged into engineering schools due to the general understanding of the government and the public that architectural design is not necessary and therefore can be executed by structural engineers. Therefore, most of today's architectural education takes place in technically orientated universities.
