Structural elements

A structure is an important constructive and aesthetical element in architecture. Every structure consists of supports (vertical elements) and loads (horizontal elements). The supports are: wall, pylon, pillar (architecture), column and arcade. The loads are: architrave, gable, ceiling, vault, roof and dome.

The structural elements are statically and technically necessary for a structure to stand. The architectural structures differ in the materials used, such as wood, concrete, iron, stone, brick etc. The material nature and function dictate the shape of the structure, but it is basically dependent on the resistance and gravity. The basic elements of any structure are:

  • the loads and
  • the supports
