Synopsis:

The subject deals with the analysis of structural solutions applied in building designs by the world's best architects. Although attention will be focused mainly on the solution of load-bearing structures, we will also pay attention to the wider context of the design.

Reading existing constructions is a natural way to learn the principles of their design. And naturally we will learn from the best. An extensive database of completed buildings, including more than 5,000 buildings, will enable us to take a trip into history and the present on all the world's continents.
