Structure as Architecture presents a comprehensive analysis of the indispensable role of structure in architecture. An exploration, as well as a celebration, of structure, the book draws on a series of design studies and case study examples to illustrate how structure can be employed to realize a wide range of concepts in contemporary architecture. By examining design principles that relate to both architecture and structural engineering, Andrew Charleson provides new insights into the relationship between both the technical and aesthetic aspects of architecture. Now in its second edition, the text has been extensively revised and updated throughout. Features include: A brand new chapter on hidden structure, adding to the material on exposed structures Two new chapters on using structure to realise common architectural concepts through a combination of precedents and creative design Over 50 new case studies from across the globe Easy-to-understand diagrams and a highly visual design to aid understanding and accessibility More than two hundred case studies of contemporary buildings from countries such as the UK, the US, France, Germany, Spain, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan illustrate how a thorough integration of structure adds layers of richness and enhances the realisation of architectural design concepts.

The Art In Structural Design

Author: Alan Holgate
Editor: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 9780198561675

Written by an engineer for advanced engineering students, this unique approach to structural design goes beyond a strictly objective treatment to consider intangible "real world" factors that also influence design, including political considerations, economics, the traditional organization of the industry, and the functional needs of the client. Architecture and aesthetics are considered together with styles of relationship between architect and engineer. Holgate examines the entire process of design, including creativity, and considers the relevance of all these factors to a general philosophy of structural design. Exceptionally well written and well illustrated.
