What is Information Architecture?

Information Architecture is the practice of deciding how to arrange the parts of something to be understandable. 

Information architectures (IAs) are all around us – in the websites we use, the apps and software we download, and even the physical places we spend time in. 

A good IA helps people to understand their surroundings and find what they’re looking for.
