Abstract:

"With the revolution in architectural form that has taken place in the last ten years, has emerged a wondrous new age of engineering and construction. New technologies, materials, and systems of fabrication have revolutionized the way buildings are conceived and constructed. Giant pneumatic domes, undulating titanium skins, fluid frameworks of cardboard tubing, and seemingly endless webs of steel and glass distinguish this advanced school of building. Never before have engineers played such a pivotal role in the process of making architecture. Their underappreciated task is to transform the designer's vision - sometimes not much more than a cardboard model or computer rendering - into a built form of concrete, steel, glass, stone, or wood."

"Featuring twenty-five of the most innovative recent projects from around the world, Remarkable Structures explores the critical collaboration between architect and engineer. Each project is accompanied by detailed architectural and engineering drawings, color photographs, and an explanatory text that describes the process of design and construction - often in the words of the architects and engineers themselves."--Jacket.
