Book Description

30 Nov 2012
The founder of the engineering firm, which continues to realize seminal structures around the world, Ove Arup is widely acknowledged as the most significant engineer of his time. Selected from his personal written archive generated over the course of his illustrious career, these lectures, essays, and interviews broadly share several themes: insight into Arup's thinking on contemporary and sustainable design processes; the importance of collaboration between professionals in architecture and engineering; and Arup's attempts to define quality in the built environment. These chronologically arranged writings span four decades and are as relevant today as they were when first produced. Illustrating wisdom, practical problem solving, and Arup's philosophy, this book is a necessary and long-overdue addition to the library of anyone who has a passion for, and an interest in, the principles of great design.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Fascinating collection of Arup's own words - mostly presentations and talks - available together for the first time. Shows off his brilliant thinking and enquiring mind, and his different (querky) and original ways of approaching any question.

Arup, with the firm that he founded, had a profound influence in the work of architects and engibeers. This book expalins why and how he acted as he did. It should be read by all thinking professionals involved in design and construction - and by t hos about to or thinking of entering any of the professions concerned.
