Architecture is part of the history of existential meanings and thoughts. Essentially, the purpose of architecture is to make meanings manifest as a concrete system of places, paths and domains. But according to man’s flexibility, capability, and ability to abstract and generalize, architects’ and artists’ styles were capable of concretizing significant differences in functions and contents rather than being an answer to mere practical problems. Each new style came to be a degeneration of the former style. This essay will discuss the forces and the reasons behind transmitting new styles to mankind throughout history.
