Summary
"The book sets out to explain the relationships between physical phenomena, materials, building elements and structural types using simple classification systems and real world examples. Photographs are used to familiarize the user with common construction technology, while historical examples are employed to chart significant moments in the history of architectural engineering." "This book will be invaluable for those contemplating the study of architecture and for those already embarked on such a course."--BOOK JACKET
