Description
How architects and engineers relate to one another has long been debated, even as their respective responsibilities have evolved with building technologies and economies. In the modern era there is controversy over professional demarcation, credit for design, the value we should attach to aesthetics in structures, and advances in technique and efficiency. This authoritative yet engaging book, with 260 black and white and 50 color photographs and drawings, examines the pattern of these relationships since the Renaissance (particularly in Britain, France, and the United States) in projects ranging from the building of Waterloo Bridge to the evolution of the Chicago skyscraper.

"Each section is a beautifully illustrated article on the history of approaches to practice, material, or type as far back as the 17th century. There are many wonderful surprises ... [and the book is] refreshing and stimulating for its grace and candor."Architect's Newspaper
