Architecture is multidisciplinary because it integrates mathematics, science, art, technology, social sciences, politics, history, philosophy and other sciences. As Vitruvius puts it, “Architecture is a science that originates from many other sciences, and which is embellished with many and varied teachings; used to evaluate those works that are the result of other arts. ” He also thinks that an architect should have a good knowledge of music, astronomy, etc. Philosophy is very important among them.
