Architect and engineer : a study in sibling rivalry by Andrew Saint( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The struggle and romance of human relations in great building projects invites exploration. How architects and engineers work together has often been debated but never before addressed over a broad span of history. This handsomely illustrated book enquires into the pattern of these relationships in western countries over the centuries since the Renaissance. Concentrating largely on Britain, France and the United States, Architect and Engineer: A Study in Sibling Rivalry looks at what has actually taken place when the two professions have interlocked. In that light, it re-examines projects ranging from the building of great masonry bridges to the Eiffel Tower and the Pompidou Centre; developments such as the evolution of the Chicago skyscraper; and personalities from Vauban and Perronet to Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and Ove Arup."--Jacket

For the first time in Banister Fletcher's A History of Architecture the architecture of the20th century is considered as a whole and assessed in a historical perspective. There is more information on vernacular buildings and engineered structures as well as many new plans and sections. This unique reference book places buildings in their social, cultural and historical settings to describe the main patterns of architectural development, from Prehistoric to the International Style. Again in the words of Sir Banister Fletcher, this book shows that 'Architecture ... provides a key to the habits, thoughts and aspirations of the people, and without a knowledge of this art the history of any period lacks that human interest with which it should be invested.' Winner of the International Architecture Book Award, The American Institute of Architects Book of the Century. THE source book for the historical development of architecture. Publisher's description
