(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This book provides an understanding of the fundamental theories and practice behind the creation of architectural structures. It aids the development of an intuitive understanding of structural engineering, bringing together technical and design issues.

The book is divided into four sections: 'Structures in nature' looks at structural principles found in natural objects. 'Theory' covers general structural theory as well as explaining the main forces in engineering. 'Structural prototypes' includes examples of modelmaking and load testing that can be carried out by students. The fourth section, 'Case studies', presents a diverse range of examples from around the world - actual buildings that apply the theories and testing described in the previous sections.

This accessible, informative text is illustrated with specially drawn diagrams, models, CAD visualizations, construction details and photographs of completed buildings. This book will give students and newly qualified architects a firm grasp of this essential topic.
AUTHOR: Pete Silver and Will McLean teach at the School of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Westminster and are the co-authors of Fabrication (2006) and Introduction to Architectural Technology (2008).
