Masters of Structure by Sutherland Lyall
Book DescriptionSometimes architects design extraordinary buildings, but in accepting the priase for innovation, the contribution of the building's engineer is forgotten. This book seeks to set the record straight through the examination of some of the most significant engineers working today, together with a selection of the most remarkable recent buildings. It focuses on 25 case studies of projects by engineers from around the world, unravelling the relationship of the engineer with the architect in each case. It becomes clear that really innovative architecture is rarely conceivable without interpretation by engineers with aesthetic sensibility. Internationally renowned firms and engineers include Ove Arup, Atelier One, Santiago Calatrava, Dewhurst McFarlane, Anthony Hunt Associates, Techniker and Buro Happold. The book features such high-profile projects as the London Eye, the Spandau Station in Berlin and the Tokyo International Forum.
