The term architectural structure refers to an important aspect of architecture and building constructions. It consists of a group of physical and digital elements and a rationale plan which is at the base of the evolution of buildings. Both architects and engineers have to work on the architectural structure to create successful architectural outcomes.
Every architectural structure has to be elegant as well as to include structural engineering design to be safe.
The term design relates to the activity of creating a plan for the construction and development of an object. The process of designing an object needs to consider different aspects such as the aesthetic, functional, economic and socio-political dimensions. As well as this, the discipline may include research and modelling, as well as interactive adjustment and redesign.
The person who designs is known as the designer and the scientific study of this discipline is identified as design science.
Nowadays, the term design is usually associated with the name applied art, as the boundaries between this discipline and art are blurred. As well as this, the term applied art is usually adopted to define fields such as industrial design, graphic design and fashion design.
Finally, design is used also in engineering where it plays a vital role within the construction processes.
