Synopsis: Architecture is able to create a force within the environment which can provide an image for, and of, a society. This profile explores the idea of the built form as an expressive and emotive power and discusses how particular governments and institutions often use a style of architecture to express the power and control they have, and how the demonstration of wealth through architecture can also signify power. A great deal can be said about a government or similar organization by the architecture it chooses to be seen in. Finally, the work touches on each aspect of power involved to generate architecture and looks at the various uses of energy within architecture.
