The subject builds on students’ previous experience of architectural technology by exploring some more specialised topics in structures and at the same time, looking more closely at the architectural implications of a few specific areas of construction.   We will re-visit the ideas of structural idealisation and extend its use for the conceptual design of structural systems in more significant buildings.   Structural ideas to be explored include high-rise, cantilevers, larger-span building geometry and stability.
