of these things are a very big part of how we construct our buildings and cities.
In this present day, buildings have changed and evolved rapidly throughout its time. A building is not merely just a structure with roof and walls but have also become a self-sustaining integrated structure where it provides noteworthy benefits to the building occupants and end user with the use of ever-growing technology and clever design. With the increase in popularity of intelligent building, many building owners seek into this concept of integrating technology with building structure as a long term solution to maximize the efficiency and productivity from the occupants. Similarly with the current development and advancement in information and communication technology, it is only natural that these attributes have greatly influenced the rapid change and innovation in building integration system and structure.
Further one this assignment will continue on the infrastructure of the economy which supports construction, this will include told, power tools, transport for materials and any objects used in order to complete a construction project which has to be order, rented or a special efforts made n order to allow for these certain services.

The large number of people moving into cities and the majority of the population living in poverty both urban and rural it is the price of the concrete block that creates Mexico’s vernacular housing. A build as you go, use what you have, and build only what you need attitude all combine to help create this endemic. However, looking across suburbs throughout Mexico, “what you need” can be misleading, many of the houses are only partially built and continually adding on. “SEEING CONCRETE BLOCKS AS VERNACULAER, REMOVES THE NOTION THAT THIS MATERIAL IS HOMGENIZING AND AHISTORICAL” – FRY 2008. Tepetzil concrete blocks are the most popular blocks, most are exposed, however wealthier families will add a coat of painting or plaster to the outer wall. Modern machinery has accelerated the production of blocks and are now formed at a very low cost. Both rural and city citizens recognize these to be very light weight, durable, able to with stand multiple weather conditions and most of all easy to build with; which help make the tepetzil block to be the most popular. Due to low wages and frequent unemployment, the overhead cost of purchasing and building with Tepetzil blocks outweigh the negatives. The deep history of architecture housing throughout Mexico is special, not only from the diverse structures within each city, but the world as
Throughout history we can see that housing has followed certain trends. These trends are most heavily influenced by the technology available to the public at that time. As can be seen throughout history, living conditions in general have improved, as there are more access to resources and building technologies. Although the world we live in has changed greatly, the basic type of shelter needed for everyday life and the resources needed to construct them has changed very little. This is why we can see a lot of parallels between the ways people live throughout history. However, the biggest change is in the way we construct buildings and especially housing. History has taught us that as time goes by, technology increases, making it easier for us to build structures. For example the Egyptians relied solely on Adobe (sun dried mud bricks) and slave labor for construction. Then came the development of hydraulic lime mortar, the Treadwell cranes (which is a wooden, human powered hoisting and lowering device) as well as the start of domes and arches, as structural components in architecture. Followed by the Middle Ages, which saw a huge emphasis on the construction of massive public buildings such as Cathedrals, Churches, Fortifications
Humphrey McQueen, as a prominent historian, has undertaken extensive research and analysis in building and construction OH&S field seven years ago and demonstrates his arguments proactively in his books Framework of Flesh in 2009, We Built This Country in 2011.
The history of Architecture started long time ago. The nomadic were groups of people whom move from one place to another in order find shelter and food to survive. As they progress, their techniques to survive evolve. The need for a permanent shelter became vital for a better stability of the group. This is the time when the first structures that provided protection appeared. Post and lintel were the first forms of Architecture, that satisficed the basic needs. Architecture evolved to be more sophisticated and fulfill the people’s needs. Consequently, Architecture evolved throughout different periods such as: Ancient architecture, Romanesque, The medieval, Renaissance, Early modern, and the industrial age, Modernism and Contemporary
“The idea was to incorporate a building that could be easily be built and taken down both constructively and economically. Most ideas involved a long, one-story building made of brick. The problem was that it looked far too solid difficult to remove later and it might be even harder to light- not to mention that it probably could not be built in time. Further debates and redrafting delayed the project even further.” (1)
I choose this topic in particular because I am waiting to seek an educational career in architecture, and to expand in the field of architecture.This specific topic will show how buildings,skyscrapers and homes all have the same beginning from start to finish before they are close to being finished as a final product.
There are numerous materials that are significant when it comes to constructing a building. Each one is vital in their purpose. This paper will address the materials that I feel are some of the most important aspects in building; foundation, wood, and concrete.
Today the global architectural industry has an annual revenue of approximately $204 billion and has an expected growth of 3.0% a year (study by ibisworld.com). In the past century, this large and quickly growing industry had moved its focus on building taller buildings to making the buildings more abstract and almost gravity defying. The world of architecture has changed from decade to decade but throughout all ages some architectural influences have remained constant. The architectural innovations in places like Ancient Egypt, the Aztec civilization, and modern Tokyo were strongly influenced by religion and geography because they played key roles in the design and construction of the building projects.
One of the most prevalent features seen throughout the modernization of the world in various places is the expansion of infrastructure. Buildings were built taller, roads were constructed more extensively, and bridges connecting two areas of land separated by water were formed. As cities became larger, populations increased, and with it, property values went up. As the population and land prices rose, the urgency for taller buildings grew with it. However, all of this required a material that was strong enough to withstand an immense amount of force. The higher buildings were built, the more likely it was to collapse from enduring all of that weight. Large-scale buildings were built through the use of iron frames combined with glass or other
Population development is an issue set to move us all, not only those in the construction industry. Population development will put amplified stress on the world’s resources, with physical space on behalf of one of the most precious resources on the planet. It’s up to the construction workers and the architects to understand how to use urban spaces more professionally and efficiently, accommodating additional people in luxury without reducing resources drastically. Expanding populations and increasing economies overseas are expected to have a knock-on effect on Britain's construction industry, too. Britain has a worldwide recognised ability for design, architecture and engineering, although, according to the 2025 strategy report, we’re yet
