Architecture is constantly influenced by the technological progresses, during all time periods, be it in the realm of new materials, innovative methods of construction and contemporary theories and design principles. Without its presence, architecture would have remained stagnant, stereotypical and devoid of the many facets, which impart truth, beauty and goodness to the structures.

Felix Candela, Frie Otto, P. L. Nervi and Santiago Calatrava, are a few personalities who have achieved awe-inspiring architecture using the means of scientific knowledge and technology. The students examined the works of any two Architects or Engineers who experimented with technology and materials through their own individual approaches and influenced the direction of Architectural exploration, in the past century.
