Often, the question about the specifics of architectural engineering is posed. What is comprised in architectural engineering? Simply, architectural engineering is related to building engineering and is the branch of engineering concerned with building designs and construction, as well as the determination of dimensions, sizes of rooms, and interior units of the building. However, that is not the full satisfactory answer to the question. Furthermore, architectural engineering is also concerned with the external finishing of buildings and the full utilization of spaces and areas, in an attempt to visualize the expectations of the building’s owner.
To a specialist, architectural engineering is one of the most interesting branches of engineering, because no matter where and when, a future architectural engineer will be able to assess and read buildings, not only appreciating their styles but also how the unique pieces fit together. As time and skill takes its toll, an architectural engineer will also be able to think about the different elements that go into the construction of a building, such as its structure, the mechanical systems (heating and cooling), how air circulates, and the consequent effects on indoor air quality, and lighting and how it circulates. Eventually, every architectural engineer will be able to dissect buildings this way and add to their caliber of experience.
With the summary of the quintessential elements of architectural engineering stated, here are some relevant pieces of information about the greatest architectural structures in the world, to highlight the points made. They are as follows:
- The World Trade Center, which is considered to be the tallest building in the western hemisphere and the sixth tallest in the world, was completed in 2013 and was opened to the public in May of 2015.
- Berlin, Germany boasts the title of one of the greatest architectural cities in the world.
- Dubai, U.A.E is considered one of the greatest architectural cities in the world, with two of the most prominent skylines, Burj al Arab and Burj Khalifa
- Abraj al Bait in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, built in 2012, is currently the third tallest skyscraper worldwide, standing at 601m tall, and consisting of 120 floors.
