Description

Hundreds of steel structures have been observed, analyzed and appraised for this book, informed by many years of experience in teaching. Referencing buildings from around the world by firms like Foster, Gehry, Murphy/Jahn, Andreu, Libeskind, Pelli, ARUP and many others, best practices in steel design are explained, using exclusive in-depth construction photographs by the author. These are complimented by technical illustrations created to look more closely at systems and details, as well as drawings supplied by fabricators that allow greater insight into a method of working with current digital drawing tools.

Understanding Steel Design treats all the classic themes, problems and solutions of materials and construction methods, supporting structure and shell, elements and connections, fire prevention and sustainability. Particular attention is paid to the interplay with other materials such as glass and wood, to requirements for Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel and to innovative systems for load-bearing structures (diagrids), in an overall approach to understand how to design and build with steel from the perspective of its architectural applications.
