The Art of Structural Engineering – The Work of Jörg Schlaich and his Team

This book by Alan Holgate presents a thorough insight into the work of Jörg Schlaich. While it focuses on the former, it also does not loose sight of his partnership with Rudolf Bergermann and their team. Together they have made a major contribution to the art of structural engineering, taking responsibility for all aspects of design and achieving close integration of its technical and aesthetic components. The book portrays the world of the structural engineer Jörg Schlaich with its many demands and opportunities as well as the satisfaction to be gained in the creation of fine structures. Brief sketches relate the history of most of the projects in which he and his partners have been involved and tell something of the man himself and his philosophy of design.
