6K buzzes
Architecture (Latin architectura, from the Greek ἀρχιτέκτων arkhitekton "architect", from ἀρχι- "chief" and τέκτων "builder") is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements.

    #14 Thanks for the bonza comment, Gert. Real beaut! But, too true, blue, I wasn't trying to pull the wool over your eyes with slang. I just sometimes tend to forget that Aussie strine is a bit of a dingo's breakfast of words and idioms from beyond the black stump. And so, to avoid somebody dobbing me in for not being dinky-di with my choice of words, I had a Captain Cook at what Dr Google has to say about 'chippy', other than my intended reference to carpenter, and was reminded that it can also mean a fish and chip shop, a potato crisp, or a chipmunk, not to mention a lady who ..... well let's just say love's to love. Fair dinkum, Gert, I'll try to be more ridgy-didge with my choice of lingo next time. Meanwhile I'm absolutely stoked that you thought my post was a ripping yarn. 🤣

    Thanks for another interesting Producer, Ken. I'm in awe with the ancient Chinese and Japanese builders and architects ingenuity. The video is great, and I learned the basics of this structural element. This interlocking assemblage of brackets mimics the tree with its branches.
    I'm particularly interested in dendriform structures, and this is a stunning example of such structural system that stood the test of time despite seismic activities throughout the centuries. And without nails, glue or any other joint fastener, just perfectly cut pieces of wood that fit perfectly one into another!!

    St. Francis. Assisi. Upper Basilica.
    Vault of the Doctors of the Church.

    A severe earthquake in September 1997 caused the collapse of the vault of the Upper Basilica and the destruction of the sail of St. Matthew and most of the frescoes.
    The S. Matteo sail covered an area of 35 square meters and produced about one hundred and twenty thousand fragments, of form and dimnnsione also very different. Restoration took place using sophisticated digitized techniques.

    Is it an impressive feat of engineering or a driver's worst nightmare. China builds a 20-road interchange - a mishmash of lanes and ramps that go in eight in directions. The Huangjuewan flyover is in the outskirts of Chongqing, a sprawling city in southwest China. The highest of the interchange's five levels soars 12 stories overhead, and the 20 lanes send cars this way and that. It will make traffic flow better for Chongqing's 8 million residents. Anyone who misses a connection or takes the wrong ramp, there is nothing to worry. Motorists will find a turnaround a half-mile ahead to correct the wrong. An engineering marvel.
