Description - Architecture and Construction in Steel by Alan Blanc

Steel is one of the most versatile materials available to architects and building designers. It can be used for virtually every part of a building from structure, foundations and cladding to roofs, frames and minor fittings. This book provides a comprehensive guide to the successful use of steel in building and will form a unique source of inspiration and reference for all those concerned with architecture in steel. Expert contributions have been commissioned by the Steel Construction Institute from 29 leading architects and engineers. They are presented in six sections: history of iron and steel construction, materials, principles of steel framing, steel construction, secondary steel elements, and outstanding contemporary steel architecture. Illustrated with over 1000 photographs, plans, sections and diagrams of buildings from around the world, Architecture and Construction in Steel will be an essential source book.
