About this book

This book highlights aesthetics as pertaining to the structural component in architectural design. This less explored aspect of architecture is discussed and explains the enduring qualities of ten specific buildings from architectural history to present day due to their structural aesthetics. Based on comprehensive research, a critical analysis is presented of the constraints and other influences on architectural and structural design, such as culture, patronage, geometry, available resources and technologies.

About the authors

Derek’s career has been in architectural practice for forty years coupled with engagement with the academic environment at university level – specifically in third and final year architectural studies and environmental science (MA). This experience has provided insights into what attributes constitute the best in architectural design, and with travel has provided me with an overview of architectural examples that are iconic and highly acclaimed. He is a published author of books on architecture (Architectural Press, 2002) and urban design (Routledge, 2016).
