Collaborating with leading architects like Zaha Hadid, Foreign Office Architects, Norman Foster, and Will Alsop, Adams Kara Taylor have become the engineers of choice for projects that redefine the conventional boundaries between structural engineering and architecture. Their holistic approach expands structural thinking to include technical solutions, aesthetics, and advanced research to adapt both diverse architectures and design methodologies. Organized into a series of synthetic themes - complexity, trans-scalarity, modelling, process - this book presents a cross-section of diverse projects and methods as a manual for new relations between radical engineering and design. Contributors include Alejandro Zaera-Polo, Simon Allford, Patrik Schumacher, Tim Anstey, Mohsen Mostafavi, and Michael Speaks.
