The history of Western architecture can teach us a lot about the evolution of web design. As forms of art, both are defined by several factors:
- They serve as places where other people go.
- They’re engineered to do this pragmatic job.
- The evolution of technology limits this engineering.
- And yet, they’re definitely still art.

History of architecture has so much to offer…
