Architecture always expresses a society’s needs, expectations, and hopes, and translates them into a built environment. Creating architecture means transferring a lifetime project to space. Architecture is an art that connects its works to a place, a site, to specific settlements having equally specific social, political and cultural conditions. The building is a human expression that concerns how man protects himself in the environment. Nonetheless, the architectural project is also a cultural act that goes beyond the mere fulfilment of practical needs, as it means transforming raw materials, and exploiting natural resources such as stone, iron, or wood, in order to bring about interactions that move us deeply. Nature’s transformation into an artefact confers cultural signifi- cance to human needs. In this sense, architecture interprets man’s search for happiness.
