Architecture and Civilizations
Throughout recorded history architecture has told us much about the civilizations that build spectacular structures that celebrate these cultures as well as providing insights on the way people lived. The same is true today.
Styles in architecture change over time as construction methods and materials improved leading the way to new thoughts, new concepts, and new horizons. Home design has changed from boxes of separate rooms at the early 1900s to form multi-family residences leading to the popular design of today with the open concept.
These transitions affect architectural designs of many other constructions, including office buildings, retail and healthcare facilities, housing developments, and facilities for medical, educational, religious, and recreation facilities.
Bringing the Outdoors Inside
Another style popular today is to complement the landscape. For those of us in Arizona, this concept is thrilling. It involves large floor to ceiling windows looking out onto desert vistas, or even a handsomely landscaped area adjacent to the building.
This concept can be successfully applied to a number of projects, from multi-family residences to office buildings and more.
The Language of Architectural
With all the changes in external and internal designs, many concepts are still in use. The arch with its curved and symmetrical beauty, the column with its upright pillars, trusses composed of struts, posts and rafters, the beam spanning ceilings, domes rounded or circular vaults for ceiling formation, eaves with their overhanging roofs, and cables, the form that encloses the ends of pitched roofs.
