Werner Sobek: Art of Engineering Hc Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The engineer, Werner Sobek understands better than most how to unite the demands of structural engineering with the design of the building. His work with steel, titanium, glass, fabric, wood or concrete exceeds the boundaries of what is usual, whilst at the same time, his structures are sensible, logical, simple in ther construction and outstanding in form. Werner Sobek has worked with his team throughout the world, building in Lima, Chicago, Limoges, Bangkok and Shanghai, and working together with architects such as Hans Hollein, Helmut Jahn, Christoph Ingenhoven, Finn Geipel and Alsop & Stormer. This book provides the first fundamental overview of Werner Sobek's work, examining the most important projects of the last ten years. The technical innovation of his constructions is documented in precise plans and drawings, large format duotone photographs convey an extraordinary aesthetic impression.
