by Karen Van Lengen,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Spatial, Lattice and Tension Structures

Abstract: Structure plays an increasingly important role in the language of architecture design. Examples from the 2nd half of the 20th century, including transportation systems and buildings, sport halls, and other large public buildings, show how the increasing global demand for large scale construction will promote new architectural expressions dependent on the design of structure for their psychological and aesthetic meaning.
