Publisher Comments:

Balmond is making the transition from structural engineer working alongside other architects to an architect in his own right. His structural thinking differs from that of others in his field, in its completely innovative conception of the engineer's contribution to architecture. The plasticity of architectural plans is enhanced through a decisive promotion of their structural designs. The borderline between structure and architecture thus becomes increasingly blurred. This process is explained in detail in "Informal" by reference to eight seminal projects. Balmond elucidates the theoretical basis of his engineering and architectural solutions, and his sketches transcend purely technical illustration - they are key to his approach. "Informal" invites readers to rethink their understanding of the relationships between architecture, design and engineering.

Synopsis:

A study of Balmond's innovative approach to structural engineering, which has made it possible for architects to realize bold new building designs.

Synopsis:

Cecil Balmond ist einer der wichtigsten zeitgenössischen Bauingenieure. Wegweisend und innovativ ist sein Beitrag zur Architektur, die er mit seiner konstruktiven Arbeit entscheidend prägt. Die Grenze zwischen Baukonstruktion und Architektur wird zunehmend unscharf. Anhand von acht beispielhaften Bauten erläutert Balmond seinen kreativen und konstruktiven Ansatz, wobei seine Zeichnungen ein wichtiger Schlüssel zum Verständnis sind. Die außergewöhnliche Layoutgestaltung fügt sich mit dem Inhalt zu einem stimulierenden Buch, das eine neue Sicht auf die Beziehung von Architektur und Konstruktion eröffnet.
