Millau Viaduct symbolizes the pride of France and a world of architectural and engineering feat in design and construction. While bridges are largely considered the territory of engineers, the close collaboration between architects and structural engineers in the design of the Millau Viaduct attests to the integral role architecture can play in the design of
Introduction Over the last three decades, there has been an increase in the number of major construction projects in Saudi Arabia. This has attracted construction professionals from different parts of the world. However, although there are almost enough construction professionals in Saudi Arabia, delay in completing major projects has been a major issue in the

Soaring demand for comprehensive techniques is increasing in a bid to sustain today’s modern society (Menges 14). The demand must adhere to the safety and performance essentials while maintaining the least amount of cost and application of the materials. This study aims at understanding architectural computations in relation to practical design computation. The study seeks
Some towers are more iconic than canonic. One of them is the Signal Box that lies next to the new railway engine depot in Basel, Switzerland. Designed by Herzog and de Meuron, the six-floor erection is recognized for its beauty and unrivaled uniqueness. The other is the impressive Sears Tower (now Willis Tower). The 1,700

 Architecture is the work of designing, structuring, and constructing buildings. A step-by-step engineering process is instituted before a project commences. Duplication of activities is eliminated through this process. Therefore, space has to be there before construction starts. Space is part of the environment or the world in which the building exists. Through senses, the body
