Art talk is talk of big words does not as a matter of sacralization, but by the intrinsic difficulty of its conception. We cannot so easily accept a meaning of art; even create it objective always there is someone who tells that it is objective from subjective, i.e., a simple opinion that is not a maxim by necessity. The Royal Spanish Academy, to which right or wrong, we are tied, first gives the following definition: virtue or disposition and the ability to do something. According to this, virtually all would be considered art. However, the following definition restricts its semantic field to a personal and disinterested that it interprets the real or imagined vision with Sonic, linguistic, or plastic resources. If this is art, then don’t we could talk about architecture as an art, since their vision is not disinterested.

On the contrary, you are interested in almost everything that ultimately build is put between people (as individuals), society (as a whole of) those) and nature (by what you can not avoid the aesthetics). The final product can not be a building uninhabitable, while a film, a painting, a poem or a song may not be comprehended and be art. The problem with architecture is its immediate usefulness. Nobody builds a building just to contemplate it or to make artistic criticism about it. The architecture has a basic and simple utility, but besides that, seeks manifested with particular aesthetic. As Hermann Broch said, we can deduce the essential characteristic of a period commonly architectural facade. In fact, a Roman housing will give us the essential feature of their citizens so that will be a reflection of needs of Visual delights, of the concept of beauty that concentrating; In short, tell us the way in which these people perceived the world. The architecture is a reflection of the society in a given period and through this reflex can surmise about the concept of art that was in that period. By Therefore, the first conclusion we could outline is that architecture is not art but sometimes may be considered as a reflection or a way of approaching the art of certain period or culture. The architecture will approach more to be a reflection of art as long as the architect decides it.
