The Art of Structural Engineering
This course illustrates:
- how engineering is a creative discipline and can become art
- the influence of the economic and social context in vault design
- the interplay between forces and form
The course has been created for a general audience—no advanced math or engineering prerequisites are needed. This is the second of three courses on the Art of Structural Engineering, each of which are independent of each other. The course on bridges was launched in 2016, and another course will be developed on buildings/towers.
