Structure and Architecture - Second Edition (Malestrom)
This book sets out the basics of structures very clearly and helps you to understand the complex world of structures. I recommend it to students studying architecture as well as engineering as it helps explain everything you need to know to design thoughtfully.' 5 star Amazon customer review 'The author's analysis of high-tech is particularly shrewd.' Glass Age Magazine ' An extremely readable book, far removed from the rather stodgy textbooks familiar to engineers, and made the more pleasing by the effects of the publisher in achieving a consistent and stylish appearance and attractive typeface, good line drawings, and well reproduced photographs.' The Structural Engineer '...an invaluable and highly recommended addition to any personal, professional, or academic architectural studies collection.' The Bookwatch Reviews for the first edition: 'People ought to know more about engineering...and Angus J Macdonald's Structure and Architecture is a good place to start. It is a solid introduction to the materials and methods that underpin architecture' The Washington Times 'Angus Macdonald is particularly good at making the conceptual link between buildings in the real world and the mathematical models of the loads, materials and the structure which engineers work with.
