Architecture and Science Connections
  1. Earth Sciences
    1. 8.D.1 Leaving a record
      1. 8.B.1. Leaving a Record: Explain how sedimentary rock is formed (embedding plant and animal remains and leaving a record of the sequence in which plants and animals disappeared)
        1. Fossils are records that show scientists today what the animals were like then and how they have changed over time. The designs of buildings a long time ago such as the Colosseum and The Leaning Tower of Pisa are sorts of records that show present civilizations to learn more about the cultures of the past
          1. There are also magazines and records that show a list of architects and what they have built
      2. Astronomy
        1. 8.D.2 Reqular and Predictable Motion
          1. 8.D.2. Regular and Predictable Motion: Identify and explain celestial phenomena using the regular and predictable motion of objects in the solar system
            1. Astronomers use the predicted motion of Earth and meteors to determine if any space debris will hit our world. Architects use the predicted motion of the ground (if it will crumble or not) to build structures that can withstand these motions.
              1. They also predict ways that the building may fail and construct contingencies to accommodate for it.
          2. Biology
            1. 8.D.1. Change Over Time
              1. 8.D.1. Change Over Time: Recognize and describe that evolutionary change in species over time occurs as a result of genetic variation in organisms and environmental changes.
                1. Species needs to change over time to adapt to changes in the environment. Architects need to adapt their designs to the environment around them and the specifications of the client.
                  1. There are also different types of buildings for different types of cultures
              2. Chemistry
                1. 8.C.1. Heat and State of Matter
                  1. 8.C.1. Describe how the motion of atoms and molecules in solids, liquids, and gases changes as heat energy is increased or decreased.
                    1. The state of matter of atoms change when energy or heat is applied. Architects need to make sure that the materials they use for their structures can withstand certain levels of heat.
                      1. An architect must be able to adapt his design(s) to the heat of the environment, so the procedure in building his design may be different and more complicated.
                  2. Physics
                    1. 8.A.2.Laws of Motion
                      1. 8.A.2. Identify and relate formal ideas (Newton’s Laws) about the interaction of force and motion to real world experiences.
                        1. Newton’s laws are used to determine motion and reactions of certain movements. Designs have to be able to stand these reactions.
                          1. If an architect wants his designs to have motion, he must consider Newton’s laws.
                      2. Thermodynamics
                        1. 8.B.1. Transfer of Heat
                          1. 8.B.1. Describe and cite evidence that heat can be transferred by conduction, convection and radiation.
                            1. Heat is transferred through liquids, by touching, and indirectly without touching. Architects need to decide if their structures should be able to transfer heat or not.
                              1. If the design has to transfer heat, then the materials required must be able to withstand the heat.
                          2. Environmental Issues
                            1. 8.B.1. Environmental Impact
                              1. 8.B.1. Recognize and explain how human activities can accelerate or magnify many naturally occurring changes.
                                1. Activities such as littering and driving can harm the environment. Some architectural designs are eco-friendly and doesn’t harm the environment, called “green architecture”.
                                  1. Regular architecture usually takes up a lot of space and the process it takes harm the environment.
