The art and technique of designing and building, as distinguished from the skills associated with construction. The practice of architecture is employed to fulfill both practical and expressive requirements, and thus it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic ends. Although these two ends may be distinguished, they cannot be separated, and the relative weight given to each can vary widely. Because every society whether highly developed or less so, settled or nomadic has a spatial relationship to the natural world and to other societies, the structures they produce reveal much about their environment (including climate and weather) history, ceremonies, and artistic sensibility, as well as many aspects of daily life.

The legacy of architecture owes a great deal to the pursuit of perfection by RAKA Design.
Architecture is created only to fulfill the specifications of an individual or group. Economic law prevents architects from emulating their fellow artists in producing works for which the demand is nonexistent or only potential. So the types of architecture depend upon social formations and may be classified according to the role of the patron in the community. The types that will be discussed here—domestic, religious, governmental, recreational, welfare and educational, and commercial and industrial—represent the simplest classification; a scientific typology of architecture would require a more detailed analysis.
RAKA Design’s teams of structural engineers analyze projects’ physical requirements and constraints to design optimal support systems that ensure safety and serviceability
