Designs are only ideas until the knowledge of structure makes it executable. As architects we need to be aware of basic rule of thumbs for different types for structures and not shy away from the complexity of numbers.
Bharath Gowda is a popular architect and structural consultant from Bangalore who is also well known for simplifying the monster of structure for students.
Join this 2-lecture Spotlight to appreciate how the value of thorough and holistic thinking from the vantages of art, technology, environment and communication can lead to better designs.
The second part of the Spotlight focuses on Steel Structural Systems including composite construction. Fundamental principles and structural behavior of steel buildings in withstanding gravity loads will also be discussed.
Join now to understand the process of the design of structural steel systems and learn how to design simple steel structures.
You have been running away from theory of structures because you think its tough! Well, we can show you its not!
You understand that structural design is important but don't know how to integrate it in design process.
You wish to design structures with steel but don't know how.
