The Architecture of Bridge Design available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Telford, Thomas Limited
The role of the designer and architect in the planning and design of bridges is undergoing radical change, with architects now being appointed before the engineer on a growing number of projects. The relationship between the two roles is therefore on a different level than either will have previously experienced.
This book details the process of design whereby the inspiration for a bridge is developed into the final reality of the built solution. It looks at the functions of a bridge, defining purpose of place and context, the spirit of creativity and the reasoned progression of an idea.
