978-0-470-18785-2 • Paper • 320 pp. • January 2009 Structures are an essential element of the building process, yet one of the most difficult concepts for architects to grasp. While structural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a project, architects should have enough knowledge of structural theory and analysis to design a building. Using Francis P.K. Ching’s trademark presentation, Building Structures Illustrated is illustrated throughout with line drawings to present the essential presence of structural systems in buildings, but also helps the reader make informed decisions for architectural design. Building Structures Illustrated takes a new approach to structural design, showing how structural systems of a building—such as an integrated assembly of elements with pattern, proportions, and scale—are related to the fundamental aspects of architectural design. This essential book features: •

A one-stop guide to structural design in practice

Treatment of structural design as part of the entire building design process

An overview of the historical development of architectural materials and structures
