Overview

'Tony Hunt's Structures Notebook' was a basic primer on structural engineering in a visual and non-mathematical form. 'Tony Hunt's Sketchbook' illustrates the connection between brain and hand in conceiving structural concepts and details as possible solutions to structures in architecture.

Drawing is an important tool for initial communication of ideas. Design concepts originate in the mind and are transferred roughly and quickly to paper as freehand sketches. These sketches illustrate alternative structural concepts, ideas and details for discussions with the design team.

The drawings in this sketchbook are a selection from notebooks produced by Tony Hunt over the last 30 or so years. They relate directly to projects built and unbuilt in the field of structural engineering. The author has worked extensively with most of he well-known architects in this country and some abroad. The sketches represent early thoughts and structural ideas on a wide range of projects, both large and small. They were either produced at the time of relevant design meetings or as a response to a problem posed by an architect and are, therefore, a record ideas proposed at the particular time. In most cases a range of structural alternatives are proposed. Sometimes the first idea was the one adopted.

All drawings are freehand. The style and approach has varied over the years and has become 'freer' in later years, but all are by the author.
