9780117527935: Bridge Design

This book presents the proceedings of a seminar hosted by The Royal Fine Art Commission and attended by over 30 participants from the UK and Europe. These included leading engineers and architects (including Santiago Calatrava) and the Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Transport. The main address was given by James Sutherland who discussed "The commissioning of bridge designs as seen mainly in relation to visual quality". Participants then contributed to a general discussion which covered, among other issues, the relationship between aesthetics and engineering, where they part and where they meet, and the relationship between aesthetics and cost. The contributors to the seminar were Sir Philip Dowson, W.J.R. Smyth, R.D. Gillespie, R. Anthony Freeman, Terry Rochester, John A. Armitt, Irving Yass, Nicholas Grimshaw, The Lord Prosser, Povl Ahm, Professor Christian Menn, Robert Benaim, Professor Fritz Leonhardt, Santiago Calatrava. This book is intended for architects, engineers and policy makers in government.
