'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.

'This book sets out the basics of structures very clearly and helps you to understand the complex world of structures. I recommend it to students studying architecture as well as engineering as it helps explain everything you need to know to design thoughtfully.'

'The author's analysis of high-tech is particularly shrewd.'
Glass Age Magazine

' An extremely readable book, far removed from the rather stodgy textbooks familiar to engineers, and made the more pleasing by the effects of the
publisher in achieving a consistent and stylish appearance and attractive typeface, good line drawings, and well reproduced photographs.'
The Structural Engineer invaluable and highly recommended addition to any personal, professional, or academic architectural studies collection.
