A beautiful environment is essential to human wellbeing. Beauty is complex, but it is essential for the architect and designer to understand. An architect equipped with this knowledge can make informed and discretionary choices in selecting appropriate design elements for the best health, safety, and welfare outcomes. Traditional design education focuses on generating designs from the desired experience of the people who make use of the space within the science of human responses as well as historic precedent towards making beautiful architecture. The multifold environmental, social, cultural, and economic concerns and issues are addressed head on by programs that focus on delivering holistic approaches, concepts, tools, and philosophies. A critical analysis of the current architectural education and pedagogy landscape indicates the necessity to reshape it to more relevant and useful for the 21st century challenges than what standard professional curricula provide.
