On Span and Space - exploring structures in architecture.pdf
文档介绍:
On Span and Space
Using materials and structures to form the guiding principles for archi-
tectural knowledge, On Span and Space offers an understanding of
architecture from the consideration of how architectural works are
actually put together.
The physical way our houses and buildings are constructed greatly
infl uences their appearance and the way they are experienced. Today, the
challenges for architectural e from the new and increas-
plexities of architectural concepts of space. With an increasing
number of building materials as well as ever more refi ned manufacturing
technologies, architecture can be expected to e more structurally
complex, displaying a wider range of forms and geometries.
Formulating and discussing the main requisites for structural form in
architecture, On Span and Space brings together concepts from both
of the disciplines of architecture and engineering. The book is struc-
tured in three parts, each presenting a unique approach: it moves from
a philosophical consideration of the ways and means of approaching
structures in architecture, to discussing mechanical aspects of structural
form – structural materials, structural effi ciency and structural scale – to
a fi nal focus on an aesthetics of the structures of architecture, based on
how beams, columns, arches and other structure types act spatially and
mechanically in forming features of works of architecture.
An important text for any student, lecturer or researcher in architec-
tural engineering, architectural design, history or theory, architectural
or building technology and structural mechanics, this book provides
for the fi rst time both architectural and engineering areas of wisdom
united in one theory which allows for a thorough understanding and
solid knowledge base for one of architecture’s most central means of
expression.
Bjørn Normann Sandaker is Professor of Architectural Technology at
the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway. For over twenty
years he has specialised in the crossover discipline of structural design
in architecture, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in
which structural mechanics are taught alongside studio work for archi-
tectural design.
