Robert Maillart's Bridges:
The Art of Engineering
David P. Billington

Book Description

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Billington's Robert Maillart's Bridges is the result of the author's sustained interest in the life and works of Maillart and also of a broader concern, of which he has become the leading exponent, with the relationship between art and engineering on the one hand and the role of analysis in the creative process of design on the other. In a remarkable way Billington has brought these concerns to bear in this book. . . . The book should appeal to a wide audience interested in Maillart and his work, but perhaps its greatest contribution is the unusually clear insight Billington brings to the process of structural design."--Emory L. Kemp, Science
