"What is a gargoyle? What does an architect do? How can a building tell us what might be inside? Your school is a building. So is your home. Neither one may be a work of art, but they were both carefully designed and built to serve a purpose. And some buildings truly are works of art. Some are classic and beautiful and some are bold and modern. Some fit in perfectly with their surroundings. Others look completely different to everything else in the area. Find out what various types of buildings are for and what the builders were trying to show."
