2) Combining two words that comprise your study experience to becoming an architect: Architecture and Torture.
3) When you're stressing out on assignments, essay, tests, and let's not forget - STUDIO .... ALL AT THE SAME TIME
4) When you're "charette-ing" all night in studio.

4. architorture
A term used to describe architectural works built after the mid-20th century which fail to adhere to conventional and historic precedent interms of design integrity, scale, proportion, physical composition
and stylistic competence. "Architorture" is commonly found in contemporary "upscale" suburban developments (see McMansion). Commercial strips, which rely upon visual imagery to lure drivers travelling at a fast clip, provide especially choice examples of the genre.
