Architecture Impacted the Indus Valley

Architecture

  • Architecture impacted the study of mathematics, science, and engineering.


  • Most Indus Valley homes had flat roofs. So the engineers had to design roofs that were stiff enough for people to walk on without the fear of falling.


  • Some buildings were made of mud-bricks, the scientists had to figure out how to make these bricks and also have a daily routine of making them to be building-ready.


  • All the way around the civilizations there were huge walls, fortresses and citadels. The mathematics and engineering was improved because of all the planning that went into making sure that these structures fit perfectly around the buildings of the civilization.
