5 Architectural Concerns
- Energy conservation
- Resource Consumption
- Land Consumption
- Waste Disposal
Types of Planning In Urban Environments

Ethical Issues in Architecture
- Tension - Pulling apart and breakdown of molecular structure, but not very common
- Compression- pushed together so molecular structure breaks collapses.
- Bending- combination of tension (on outside) and compression (on inside)
- Shear- just like a slip/slide earthquake, but uncommon.
Ideal Structure Types
- Walls are better for compression
- Frames are better for bending
7 Steps in Constructing a Building
- 1. Prepare the site (clear forest, flatten land, etc)
- 2. Foundations (piers, underground framework)
