Descrizione articolo


An introduction to the mechanistic world of architectural structures which considers the physical principles of structures, the materials of which they are made, the ways in which they may be built, and the history of man's involvement with them.

From the Publisher:

The book first identifies features that distinguish the forms built by man from those shaped by nature and discusses the physical and other constraints on the choices that can be made. It then looks in turn at all the elementary forms - arches, domes, beams, slabs and the like - which combine into the more complex forms of complete structures, and at the different classes of the complete forms themselves. The development of each form is traced chronologically, but with an emphasis on the chronology rather than on the problems that designers have continually faced in trying to serve new ends with limited means or to serve old ones in new ways. The book concludes with a chapter on the processes of design, showing how a growing understanding of structural behavior has widened the designer's freedom of choice.
