Strip foundation is usually used when the soil is good at bearing. According to Ching book chapter 3.05, shallow foundation is employed when the stable soil has an adequate bearing ability, they transfer the building loads directly to the supporting soil by vertical pressure.

Structural Materials A steel it is widely used in construction of buildings, railway and so on. Good at tensile stress. Such as steel beam, steel reinforcement. According to ching chapter 3.16, steel base plate is necessary for to distribute the column load over a wide enough area so that the stress concrete allowed won’t be exceeded B copper which has high thermal and electrical conductivity, it is durable and has corrosion resistance. Copper is used in wall cladding in this building case

D concrete concre te slab , concrete beam, is it one of the most durable material,( http://www.wbcsdcement.org/index.php/key-issues/sustainability-with-concrete/propertiesof-concrete ) used in majority of the buildings, C timber timber frame or decoration

E glass glass as decoration, enable lights to go through , brighten up the inner space

Weld is a sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing coalescence. By melting the pieces and add filer material to make up a pool with heat and pressure. Here refers to the point for melting Concrete high compressive strength Bolt a cylindrical threaded fastener Screw a mechanism, a fastener featured of helical ridge. external thread wrapped around a cylinder. Nail pin-shaped object metal used as fastener or peg to hang stuff
