Influence: Government on Urban Architecture

While most overlook the fact that architecture has long been influenced by politics, their very intact correlation says otherwise. Urban and city architecture, where in fact most architectures take place is highly influenced by political laws, projects, and approvals. Through these come political fundings that actually predetermines whatever city architecture is to be made, how, and when it will be made. Even architectural renovations which can be done by is mostly tolerated and agreed upon by government budget and priority.

Factors Connecting The Government to Architecture

Most architectural fundings go to more landscape infrastructures that can build within the economy and cater a solid kick back of the fund back to the government, that can then be withheld and reused for other urban necessity which is how basically the government fundings work. Cities that have a lot of tourist spots, or is essentially a tourist spot on its own has high chances of gaining financial support from the government since it can cater to tourism which is a primary source of income for the government and the locals of a city which then transcends to higher positive outcomes for the greater population.

Architecture is also influenced by the government by determining what buildings should be added to an urban area. Also classifying the needs to educationals ones, health-related, religious, or recreational and leisure ones which mainly comprise city structures, since these are the main needs of citizens, and this is a normal concept of the city by which all the stated are present and thriving. Lastly, architecture is influenced by the government in determining the design and structure that is accompanied by the architecture aspect itself. Some cities are known for their very specific theme or similarities when it comes to geometric designs, height, and or materials like wood, glass, etc. Cities that have such are not easily agreeing on foreign buildings that will stand the city’s landscape framework since this is also a part of identity and tourism by which government takes seriously and more strictly.
