schlaich bergermann und partner who are dedicated to lightweight structures – the efficient use of materials, the readability of the force flow, the simplicity in the sense of restriction to the essential principle of “less is more” – and the honesty to show construction as what it is. We try to design the details so that they disclose what they do, without embellishment. Our contribution to architectural ideas, to design, bases on these principles which are visible not only in long-span roof structures, in arenas and stadiums, but also in all other areas of our work and very clearly also in bridge design.
In this way we try to contribute to successful architecture. This especially works well, if the participating architects and engineers, as well as our clients, share these principles.
