Buildings provide us with basic human needs for shelter, security, privacy, storage, and work while also acting as universal carriers of art, culture, history, economics, and equity. Looking at a diverse range of techniques and building types that include residential, commercial, civic, educational, medical, industrial, agricultural, and infrastructural uses, these fundamental elements and principles make up the majority of our built environment. The following guides have been created for you as a survey covering the various construction methods, systems, components, materials, logics, and standards that influence how buildings are constructed around the world. These resources will be constantly growing and expanding over time in an effort to further illustrate and document the many topics and issues related to buildings.
