Infrastructure and logistics
Infrastructures are frequently the somewhat forgotten part of architectural projects, in which aesthetic taste is often more emphasized than functionality. Yet infrastructure and logistics play an important role in architectural design.
Infrastructures constitute the vital networks necessary for the efficiency and functionality of a building, a complex, a city. Whereas, logistics is understood as the organization around the management of resources, in order to ensure that spaces are efficiently used. Therefore, understanding the impact of infrastructure and logistics on architectural design is critical to achieving optimal results.
The infrastructures must be considered in relation to the geographical location, the environmental conditions and the urban context of the building or complex designed. To ensure that the accessibility, connection and efficiency of the buildings are adequate, it is essential to take into account the infrastructure available in the vicinity.
When designing a building or complex, both infrastructure and logistics must be considered simultaneously to ensure smooth operation over time. This means integrating qualified technical-systematic issues with more aesthetic and emotionally engaging elements of architecture in everyday life.
