Section of building structures

Courses in the Section of Building Structures take place during the first four semesters of the BA programme: Building Structures 1 – 3 in the first three semesters and Architecture and Integrated Disciplines Studio in the 4th semester, as a synthesis of everything that has been learned in the field of bearing constructions. Designing the construction is an important and often crucial factor in architectural design. The main goal of the courses held at the Section are to teach the students how to distinguish various construction systems and materials, and also how to understand their behaviour in order to be able to apply these skills in their own concepts of constructions (and design).
