As architectural projects have grown larger and more complex, as materials have become more specialized and advanced, as the world's cities have developed in size and density, the collaborative partnership of architects and structural engineers has gained prominence. Many of the major works of the early twenty-first century would have been difficult to build or even conceive without the contributions of firms like Ove Arup & Partners, Buro Happold, and Mutsuro Sasaki & Partners, to name just a few. "Support and Resist" is the first book to focus on the revolution in engineering culture in which structure shares the stage with design.In profiles of fourteen American and international engineers and more than thirty case studies, Nina Rappaport details facets of this revolution: collaboration, intuition, structural integration, hybrid structures, structure as decoration, computer workflow, and fabrication technologies.
