Über diesen Titel
As architectural projects have grown larger and more complex, as materials have become more specialized and advanced, as the world's cities have developed in size and density, the collaborative partnership of architects and structural engineers has gained prominence. Many of the major works of the early twenty-first century would have been difficult to build or even conceive without the contributions of firms like Ove Arup & Partners, Buro Happold, and Mutsuro Sasaki & Partners, to name just a few.
Support and Resist is the first book to focus on the revolution in engineering culture in which structure shares the stage with design.In profiles of fourteen American and international engineers and more than thirty case studies, Nina Rappaport details facets of this revolution: collaboration, intuition, structural integration, hybrid structures, structure as decoration, computer workflow, and fabrication technologies.
Nina Rappaport is an architectural critic, curator, and educator. She is the director of publications at Yale School of Architecture, and editor of the biannual publication Constructs, and the school’s studio book series including CAC: Contemporary Art Center, Zaha Hadid Studio 2000, The Millennium House, and the Bass Studio series. She was a fellow of the Design Trust for Public Space in New York and has received grants from New York Council on the Arts and the Graham Foundation for the Advancement of the Fine Arts.
