Abstract

In designing a civil structure, difference professionals are involved from the conceptual stages through the constructions up to the final project stages. Because of this, there are different links which exist between different professionals which need to be addressed properly to obtain the best environmentally friend structure with adequate cost as well as strength and durability. In particular, when we look at the cooperation of architects and engineers, we may observe that they have some difficulty in working together harmony. This is due to the complexity of intangibility and tangibility as well as actual and abstract notion of the Architecture. Structural engineers focus more on tangible and actual notion of structures and detail aspects. On the other hand, Architects put great prominence on global and general aspects, such as spatial forms and atmosphere generated. This contradictory ways of thinking sometimes result in difficulty in communication [10]. Moreover, in the design processes, the general arrangement or structural form is chosen for a building at initial stage will normally determine the type of structure which will have to be adapted to support it and will perhaps also dictate the selection of structural material [4]. In fact the structural dimensioning of the previously defined morphological system results in it being a less trustworthy system, leading to a structure that is greatly susceptible to seismic damage This is because of the delinquency of relating the already defined architectural form and that of the structural design [11]. Furthermore, “reference [7]” quoting different architects ideas and stating: "All professionals need to learn the art of Architecture because it concerned altogether - John Ruskin. Le Corbusier said that “Architecture is the accurate, proficient, and the outstanding play of masses brought together in light”. For this reason, Architects and structural engineers need to have a better understanding of the joint works and carry out the activities in close proximity to produce a sound architecture.
