1)According to Ryerson's University's ACU bulletin board:
"The study of building and design - while testing the limits of the mind, body, and soul"

2)Combining two words that comprise your studying experience to becoming an architect: Architecture and Torture

3) When you're stressing out on assignments, essays, tests, and let's not forget - STUDIO ---> ALL AT THE SAME TIME

4) When you're "charette-ing" all night in studio
OMG, I've been architortured.

When studying architecture for 7 years is no longer fun
'I'm so fed up this course is architorture.'

A term used to describe architectural works built after the mid-20th century which fail to adhere to conventional and historic precedent in terms of design integrity, scale, proportion, physical compostition and stylistic competence. "Architorture" is commonly found in contemporary "upscale" suburban developments (see McMansion). Commercial strips, which rely upon visual imagery to lure drivers traveling at a fast clip, provide especially choice examples of the genre.
The CEO's home, with its garish faux-stucco facade, pretentious columns and glassy two-story entrance foyer, is the sort of architorture best suited for Republican fund-raising events.
