Capa dura, 840 pp, 30 x 24 cm
Guy Nordenson made his mark crafting and executing challenging structural design projects while intertwining the disciplines of science and art. Reading Structures: 39 Projects and Built Works presents thirty-nine complex architectural structures, both built and unbuilt, by the Princeton University professor and structural engineer.
This body of work, developed with architects and artists, reveals Nordenson’s unique approach to a progressive collaborative process as both engineer and designer. The structures in this volume span twenty-eight years of creative work and are organized around three thematic sections: engineering ephemera, simply supported and building history.
