Item description for Expressing Structure: The Technology of Large-Scale Buildings by Virginia Fairweather...

What are the technical demands involved in carrying out large-scale projects? How do considerations of design and architectural appearance influence the form of load-bearing structures, and how can these be made visible? Just what kind of engineering achievement do, for example, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur represent? "Expressing Structure" addresses questions such as these by documenting 19 case studies of exceptionally challenging high-rise buildings and extreme broad-span structures such as airport terminals and sport arenas. Examples portrayed include New York JFK-Airport's new Terminal One, the Plaza 66 office tower in Shanghai, Fort Worth Museum of Art in Texas and performance centres such as Gaylord Arena in Nashville und Philips Arena in Atlanta.
