'Structure and Architecture' is an essential textbook for students and
practitioners of architecture and structural engineering. MacDonald
explains the basic principles of structure and describes the ranges of
structure types in current use. Furthermore, the book links these topics
directly with the activity of architectural design and criticism. An
update of the first edition, 'Structure and Architecture 2ed' includes a
revised opening chapter, and a new section that discusses prominent
buildings constructed since the last edition was published in 1994.
Angus MacDonald deals with structures holistically, relating detailed
topics back to the whole structure and building. He aims to answer the
questions: What are architectural structures? How does one define the
difference between the structure of a building and all of the other
components and elements of which it consists? What are the requirements
of structures? What is involved in their design? An understanding of the
concepts involved in answering these questions and an appreciation of
how the structure of a building functions enhances the ability of an
individual to appreciate its architectural quality. This book is unique
in that it discusses the structural component of architectural design in
the context of visual and stylistic issues
