|Description:||The ideas upon which this study is based came originally from teaching structures to graduate students in architecture. Bored with typical engineering texts, they showed me their ideas of beautiful struc- tures, such as the bridges of the Swiss engineer Robert Maillart and the buildings of the Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi. Gradual1y, be- ginning in 1962, I developed for the architecture students a series of slide lectures on engineering structures. In 1974, I put these lectures together to make up a new course at Princeton for engineers, architects, and liberal arts students. This book comes directly out of that course. But the central idea that engineering structures could be an art form also had another source, my research on the life and works of Robert Ma ilia rt.|
