Architectural Design Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Form and Forces
Designing Efficient Expressive Structures
by Edward Allen

Here, in one volume, is all the architect needs to know to participate in the entire process of designing structures.

Emphasizing graphical approach, the book enables you to quickly determine the desired form of a building or other structure and easily design it without the need for complex mathematics.

Form and Forces teaches the whole process of structural design for architects, including:

  • selection of suitable materials
  • finding a suitable configuration
  • finding forces and size members
  • designing appropriate connections
  • proposing a feasible method of erection

Chapters are centered on the design of a whole structure, from conception through construction planning.
