Sunday Post: Architecture and Architect, A Not So Itsy Bitsy Spider

Ancient Cathedral built on the site of an even older Pyramid, Mexico City.  Jake

Asked us to think of architecture a social Art form.

The spider is an Excellent Architect, but not a very social being.

Is arachnid and architect from the same root word?  Come on Sunday Challenge folks, someone should  know!

  1. Architect derives from the Latin architectus, which derives from the Greek arkhitekton (arkhi-, chief + tekton, builder), i.e., chief builder

    Arachnids are a class (Arachnida) a term derived from the Greek word ἀράχνη (aráchnē), meaning “spider”

    Completely UN related ~ Great pic of the cathedral though !!! 🙂
