From Latin construct, building is the action and effect of building . This verb mentions build , manufacture or develop a work from engineering or of architecture . For example: “The construction of the new theater is very advanced”, "The collapse was caused by failures in the construction process", "The architect Jacobacci announced the construction of a 30-story building facing the river".
The construction concept is also used to name the built work and at art of building : "On the left we can see a construction of the eighteenth century that functioned as a warehouse of general branches", “My father is engaged in construction”, "The tornado destroyed several constructions of the town", “I love colonial buildings, with their windows and their arcades”.
We cannot ignore the fact that so-called construction games are frequent and common. These are games for children that are made up of endless pieces of different shapes, colors and sizes that allow them to create all kinds of buildings, figures or objects. Among the most famous is the already traditional Mecano.
It should be stressed that it is recommended to give this type of entertainment to children, aged between 1 and 6 years, because thanks to him they learn the colors and shapes, improve their coordination, develop their motor skills and expand their qualities in skill matter.
Balance, symmetry, motor and intellectual development, creativity or endurance are other values that are considered to improve and develop any minor that has fun with this type of construction games.
Currently there is much talk about what has been called sustainable construction. As the name implies, it is about setting up buildings of different types and creating cities, in general, betting on materials and processes that cause the least possible impact and damage to the environment.
In this way, what is sought is not only to protect and care for the natural environment but also to make the citizen enjoy a better quality of life. Specifically, it is about building buildings that make the lowest energy expenditure and offer the greatest possible comfort for the person.
The idea of construction, on the other hand, is used in a symbolic sense to refer to everything that, in some way, is built or produced . It is not a physical building (with cement, bricks, etc.), but it can be linked to an assembly that is not tangible or material . If a politician comments that he is working on “The construction of a new electoral front that represents the interests of the workers”, is referring to what seeks to create an alliance between political parties and not to raise a building .
In a similar sense, the expression “We all have to commit to building a different country” can be related to a joint and solidarity work to improve a nation , not to declare the existence of a new State .
