In subtractive processes, the sculptor begins with a mass of material larger than the finished work and removes material, or subtracts from that mass until the work achieves its finished form. Carving is a subtractive process. In additive processes, the sculptor builds the work, adding material as the work proceeds. Modeling, construction, and assemblage are additive processes.

What is the difference between sculpture and architecture?

Both are three dimensional arts based on physical mediums, however, sculpture is meant to create buildings and housing and sculpture is meant to create things you can't live in (like The Thinker. You can't live in him.) . This poses a question. Is the Statue of Liberty a work of Sculpture or a work of Architecture? You can live in it, in theory. Can it be both? Does it matter the size or the purpose?. I propose that 3 Dimensional art is a spectrum. On one side is Michelangelo's David, the greatest sculpture ever made, and the other end is the Colosseum, a masterpiece of architecture. Then there is a fuzzy grey area. The St. Louis Arch is in this area. Anyway, look at it how you want. I think three dimensional art is it's own big happy family. Good Luck..

What is the difference between sculptures in the round and relief sculptures?

In the round sculptures tend to free standing three dimensional forms -think of bronze statues or the lions in trafalgar square. In relief tend to be built up or carved out from a flat surface - medals and coins are good examples, they can still look three dimensional in that they have raised areas but the head on a coin is very different from the head of a bust. In relief sculpture can also stand up and you can walk around it however the proportions will not be right - in our head example the head could be on one side only with a flat back, or if the sculpture was in relief on both sides it would look like it had been severely squashed either side making an extremely thin face.
