The Structural Basis of Architecture
The Structural Basis of Architecture is a book that shows how to 'see' structures as being integral to architecture. It engages a subject that is both about understanding the mechanical aspects of the structure as well as being able to relate this to the space, form, and conceptual design ideas that are inherent to the art of building. Analyzing the structural principles behind many of the best-known works of architecture from past and present alike, this book places the subject within a contemporary context. The subject matter is approached in a qualitative and discursive manner, illustrated by many photographs and structural behavior diagrams.
