Best known for his amazing free-form shell structures, Heinz Isler has inspired both architects and engineers with his dazzling creations. His work transcends the definition of mere structural engineering to the extent of becoming structural art. This book considers the unique work of this exceptional engineer.
Isler's primary medium of expression is the reinforced concrete shell. Rejecting the use of mathematical formulae, he approaches the challenges of each new structure by using physical modelling to determine the form and subsequently to investigate its stability.
