In civil engineering structures, the focus is above all on functionality and rationality. Yet in terms of design, civil engineering structures are also highly demanding creations.
The art of architecture thus differs from other art forms in many facets.
Civil engineering structures always have a function to perform, and by their nature they are subject to different rules than works of art: rules that unavoidably require consideration of load-bearing behaviour and fabrication – a very simple relationship that inseparably links architecture with the science of engineering.
