Architecture provides a sense of place and support of all types of human activity. Architecture helps the man-made fit in harmony with the environment while promoting health and well-being, enriching lives aesthetically and spiritually, providing economic opportunities, and creating a legacy that reflects and symbolizes culture and traditions.
Tall Buildings historically seem to have been designed as either vertical extrusions of an efficient floor plan, or stand-alone pieces of high-rise urban 'sculpture'. In both cases the only relationship with the urban setting is a visual one, with the tall building usually dominating.More
Industrial architecture is the design and construction of buildings serving industry. These are structures and buildings such as factories, furnaces, power plants, manufacturing facilities, heavy-duty pipes, etc. Industrial architecture also describes the features and appearance of these industrial structures.
