With Steel, Structure, and Architecture, architect Arne Petter Eggen and engineer Bjorn Normann Sandaker have produced an informative, inspiring volume on the uses and applications of steel in architecture, engineering, industrial design and art. To illustrate steel's versatility the authors include many well-known examples of steel structures designed by Mies van der Rohe, I.M. Pei, Santiago Calatrava, Peter Rice, Norman Foster, Michael Hopkins, Eva Jiricna, Nicholas Grimshaw, and Ove Arup, among others. They discuss the properties of the material, production methods, dimensioning, and surface treatment, including rust protection, Cor-Ten, and stainless steel. Different methods of joining steel components are outlined, as are combinations of steel with other materials, like masonry, wood, glass, and fabric.Covering both the practical and esthetic uses of steel, Steel, Structure, and Architecture is an indispensable source for any serious practitioner or student of architecture, engineering, and design.
