Structure is an integral and inseparable aspect of any built form. Any professional involved in design of built form needs thorough understanding of structure. Structure, Material and Form - how they are selected, manipulated or associated in design produces the outcome, therefore the understanding of fundamental principles is very important for designers. The course deals with developing the understanding of structural actions, properties of structural materials and form which will help to see the structure in small artifacts to large built forms. This will aid participants in taking design decisions from selection of material and development of appropriate form.
