Under load, timber creeps and deforms. Serviceability therefore often governs structural analysis. Structural analysis, detail design and processes of technology take care of a number of the specific problems of timber structures, such as buckling, behaviour around notches, prevention of interstitial condensation, protection against moisture, insect and fungal attack, and fire (Sebestyen, 1998). Technical progress in the use of timber has some major repercussions on architecture. g. , 2001) • use of new fasteners, hangers, connectors (Bianchina, 1997) • new principles in structural analysis and design, including adequate consideration of the interaction between loads and material properties.

Materials in this group are bulky and moving them to the building sites requires substantial transport activities (with much energy consumption) on roads, railways and waterways. Glass production also consumes much energy although it must be said that glass can be recycled with relative ease and at reasonable cost. ) have been used in construction since ancient times but their wider application is a modern phenomenon. Ore mining precedes transformation into metals and their alloys. Mining ores may cause serious damage to nature.

The question has indeed been raised (Jencks, 1997) but could not be answered definitively, for no definitive answer can ever be provided concerning the future 31 New Architecture and Technology as affected by social and human factors. What, however, is certain is that technological progress has an increasing influence on architecture. Engineers, as has been stated in previous contexts, are partners of architects; while some are themselves designing structures with architectural ambitions, others are active partners in providing a solid basis for architectural dreams and ambitions.
