This course aims to enable students to understand and be able to produce various structural concepts of all vertical and horizontal spanning elements, pertaining to buildings beyond the residential scale. The concepts must show how the structure carries the load (in all three directions) and the most appropriate material choice. Here vector and other relevant force diagrams are used to argue the form and material. Structural elements include bridges, large span building structures and tall buildings, planar space frames, shells and girders.
