Introduction 10 Lecture 1 Architectural Structures I ENDS 231 S2008abn Relation to Architecture “The geometry and arrangement of the load-bearing members, the use of materials, and the crafting of joints all represent opportunities for buildings to express themselves. The best buildings are not designed by architects who after resolving the formal and spatial issues, simply ask the structural engineer to make sure it doesn’t fall down.” - Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction
