Offering an in-depth analysis of structural design and its relationship with architectural theory, this thoroughly updated edition draws on a clear discussion of structural form and the governing principles of architecture. Building on an understanding of structural integrity, and qualities thereof, Structure and Architecture provides essential criteria of structural arrangement through a mixture of empirical, theoretical, and personal reflections on the basic understanding of the role of structure in architecture. Fully illustrated, this critical appraisal of structures and the role of engineers is a core-curriculum text built on a thorough grounding of the practicalities of structural design. Useful for students and practitioners alike, this new edition contains new material on the concept of sustainable design, prominent engineers, and the philosophy of the built environment.
