Event Title

Form and Logic of structures

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

Almost all of Civil Engineering structures does harbor some degree of logic. Sometimes, it is plain to see it and sometimes it lies hidden so only a well-informed eye can detect it. Natural phenomena are dual in their mode of interaction. So are Tension and Compression, which do represent the basic genome of any structure be it simple or very complex. Bending and torsion are somewhere in between. A structural Form that respects this interplay in addition to the flow of forces being in consonance with the principal laws of Nature, imperatively results in not only economically and mechanically efficient ones but in aesthetically pleasant silhouettes also.

Form and Logic of structures

Durres, Albania

Almost all of Civil Engineering structures does harbor some degree of logic. Sometimes, it is plain to see it and sometimes it lies hidden so only a well-informed eye can detect it. Natural phenomena are dual in their mode of interaction. So are Tension and Compression, which do represent the basic genome of any structure be it simple or very complex. Bending and torsion are somewhere in between. A structural Form that respects this interplay in addition to the flow of forces being in consonance with the principal laws of Nature, imperatively results in not only economically and mechanically efficient ones but in aesthetically pleasant silhouettes also.
