‘Structure As Architecture cuts to the heart of the architectural and engineering relationship. This book explores how form and function blend, where structural and architectural concepts interweave and support each other for a technically and aesthetically enhanced work. Andrew Charleson demonstrates his holistic approach to architecture and engineering through stunning case studies where designers seamlessly and elegantly blend structural engineering with the architect’s design intent. As a structural engineer and architect, I truly believe this book is a must-read.’ - Holger S. Schulze Ehring, Structural Designer, New York City
