The Joy of Steel...So Many Possibilities [K2]
This is the story of one engineer's decades-long journey of discovery of the surprising and almost limitless ways structural steel can be used. Many projects provide new lessons on what is possible. Even "forgotten" solutions from the 1960s still have applications today. Many recent projects have succeeded by creating new approaches ranging from inventing new structural systems to advanced construction methodology to seismic isolation. What does all of this mean for the future of steel construction? The most important discovery of this personal journey is that while it may appear to be about steel, it is really about people--people working together to create incredible structures.
