About the Author:

Yasmin Sabina Khan is Fazlur Khan's daughter. She writes: In Engineering Architecture I set out to both record the significance of my father's accomplishments and shed light on the indescribable creative process by exploring how my father defined and worked through his design problems. I am sincerely pleased to hear that within his experience readers have discovered not only example but also inspiration.I am happy about all of the encouraging reviews the book has received. They highlight my father's place in Chicago history and his role as a world leader in the design field. But the concluding words of one review, in the Journal of Architectural Education, are especially meaningful to me, as you can imagine: "[Fazlur] Khan also must have been a human being of extraordinary spiritual depth. He appears as a model of what many would like to be."

Review:

“A worthy and delightfully written tribute to a remarkable man.”
- Architectural Science Review

“Seldom is the life and work of a designer described so abundantly as in this book about Fazlur Kahn (1929-1982). Written by his daughter, Yasmin, who has earned her own record as designer, this book is very personable story of a driven technician with a deep love of his profession... [R]eads like a novel.”
- Bouwen met Stall

“[A] moving tribute to an important figure--one that would surely make him as proud of his daughter as she clearly is of him.”
- Civil Engineering

“Among several eminent Kahns and Khans in...American construction, none better deserves a full study...[S]upplants the only previous book-length study”
- Construction History: Journal of the Construction History Society

“Fazlur R. Khan is one of the most influential structural engineers of the 20th century... his daughter has written an account of his achievements and laced his creative timeline with descriptions of his theories and practices.”
- Mia Jacobi, Desert Living

“[A] much needed book... The prose reads swiftly, the chapters are well-organized, and, most important, the stories they narrate are compelling.”
- Joseph Siry, Journal of Architectural Education

“Here is a book that will make you proud to be a part of the design/construction community... [A]n inspiring biography.”
- Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities

“[A]n inspiration to the engineer as well as the architect.”
- Shahin Vassigh, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

“Yasmin Sabina Khan has written an engaging intellectual biography of her father. . . . This lengthy book is rich with ideas relevant to historians of technology...[A]n excellent variety of illustrations... Khan’s carefully researched work contributes substantially to the literature on mid-twentieth century large-scale building.”
- Sharon Irish, Technology and Culture

“[W]ell presented and has materials of great interest for structural engineers.”
- The Structural Engineer
