What is architecture varies for everyone...architect, client, professor, student, and citizens. While you inclined a division that the profession posesses (art and science), it may be argued that interesting works of architecture are those which are a harmonious hybrid of the two realms. Where structure and science plays a significant role in how one experiences the space. For instance Santiago Calatrava is a wonderful example of such a connection between the two. His space is his structure.
There is no reason to make the division...some posts have delt with these issues...architecture, interior design, furniture design, graphic design, the list can go on and on...though it is my feeling that one should aspire to be a designer...rather than cut off their efforts when the project has met some waypoint. There are many buildings that could be great 'Architecture,' though their finshes are not well thought out, (or not paid for), and the oppurtunity is lost.
Those who have a strong talent in composition and graphics should attempt to be equally strong in the techtonics of a building. Without a good knowledge of all aspects for "architectural practice," your dreams of seeing your creativity blossom will always be hindered.
