Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"But that's far from all. Beautifully and liberally illustrated with photographs and drawings of case studies in this new form, Architecture and Science itself looks like a work of art. The futuristic look of many of the designs is all the more astonishing when you realize that many of these buildings already exist as thigns and not just concepts. And whatever you may feel about the aesthetics of such "modern" structures, understanding the marriage of art and science- in a union tighter than ever- from which they sprang might make you seem them in a new light." (Civil Engineering, Dec 2001)

"manages to bring order to a complex, confusing and, perhaps sometimes, confused field.." (Architectural Review, 1 February 2002)
