The use of historical precedent in teaching structures to architects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Structures are a vital but oft overlooked facet of the architecture curriculum. Structural and historical analyses of innovation in structural engineering and the evolution of structural form provide a useful pedagogical tool. Such analyses facilitate student understanding of fundamental structural principles and foster a greater appreciation for the design potential associated with structural optimization.
