Item description for Building the Future: Building Technology and Cultural History from the Industrial Revolution Until Today by Ulrich Pfammatter...

A leading scholar of architecture examines the past and future of structural engineering.

Spanning more than two centuries and offering cogent analyses of how we will build in the future this volume presents more than one hundred case studies of built structures that illustrate the marriage of technology and culture. Including color photographs, drawings and architectural plans, this book profiles some of the world s most interesting public spaces, commercial buildings, stadiums and transport stations to reveal how prevailing social mores helped determine these structures materials, appearance, and function. The innovative concepts these buildings signify and the integration of these ideas into the common lexicon are presented in chapters on the evolution of the greenhouse, artistic buildings, pioneering techniques in materials use, the development of the building faade and the future of sustainable building design. This book uniquely blends a societal perspective with the latest technology, and is an essential reference for anyone interested in the crucial role structural engineering plays in architecture.
