Lowers Marble demand
Architecture ( Economy )
Expansion requirements:
Wood and Marble
Use requirements:


Angle, Compass and Yardstick: The Architect's Office provides everything needed for building straight walls and stable roofs. And a well-planned house needs a lot less marble than a skew one.

  • Every level of the Architect's Office lowers demand for Marble by 1% per expansion (only in the town it is built).
  • This building will affect the cost of all buildings except for the Academy and the Temple.
    Some buildings will not be affected at the lower levels as they only cost Wood to build or upgrade.
  • This building will not affect the costs for units or ships, nor for donations to the Miracle on the island.

Explanation of Reduction Buildings

All reduction buildings add their deduction percentage to that given by Pulley, Geometry and Spirit Level. This means the actual discount is an additional 1% per level of the reduction building, plus the reduction from the level of research you have completed. For example, a Level 1 reduction building combined with Pulley has a net of 3% reduction, with Geometry there is a net of 7%, and with Spirit Level there is a net of 15%. With the maximum level of reduction buildings (Level 32, 32% reduction) and Spirit Level (14%), the maximum reduction for that resource is 46%. This means you use only 54% of the original cost.
