In a novel approach, this book looks at what happens when groups of people with differing outlooks and knowledge come together to design a building project. An initial review discusses the influence political considerations, economics, the traditional organization of the industry, and functional needs of the client have on decisions concerning structure. Architecture and aesthetics are considered together with styles of relationship between architect and engineer. The process of design is examined, and finally, the relevance of these topics to a general philosophy of structural design is considered. In introducing students to the less predictable aspects of design, this book will provide a stimulating contrast to the necessary study of technique. It also offers the layman an accessible introduction to project planning, architecture, and design method.
