Neapolis outlines importance of architecture to school students

Dean of the school of architecture, engineering, land and environmental sciences of Neapolis University Paphos professor Solon Xenopoulos gave a presentation/lecture earlier this month to second and third year pupils of the lyceum and technical school of Polis Chrysochous.
Professor Xenopoulos developed his speech along four fundamental entities:
a) Presentation of the essential role of architecture as the practice which is responsible for the formation of the space where societies are constituted and stressing architecture’s social role.
b) Explanation of the terminology and distinction between architecture and civil engineering in terms of each one’s specific professional and scientific aspect.
c) Description of the organisation and structure of architectural studies, both in terms of the professional prospects and demands, as well of the significance of these studies in respect of the overall cultural development and cultural background of the students of architecture.
d) Reference to the specific scientific disciplines and professional groups which cooperate in the study and supervision of buildings and other structures.
