Lecture notes STRUCTURAL CONCEPTS AND SYSTEMS FOR ARCHITECTS by Victor E. Saouma

There is a fundamental dierence between science and and technology. Engineering or technology is the making of things that did not previously exist, whereas science is the discov- ering of things that have long existed. Technological results are forms that exist only because people want to make them, whereas scientic results are informations of what exists indepen- dently of human intentions. Technology deals with the articial, science with the natural.” (Billington 1985)
