9780138541187: Structure in Architecture: The Building of Buildings

In this thoughtfully written book, professor Salvadori endeavors to eliminate one of the most serious gaps between theory and practice in the field of structures. His aim is to build a bridge between the more or less conscious intuition about structure, which in common to all mankind, and the scientific knowledge of structure, which gives a fair representation of physical reality on the basis of mathematical postulates. No one doubts that the bridging of this gap is possible and that, if achieved, it would be extremely useful. In order to invent a structure and to give it exact proportions, one must follow both the intuitive and the mathematical paths...... Pier Luigi Nervi 465 pages / 15,5 x 23,5 cm / English
