Andrea J. Schokker - Associate Professor of Civil Engineering, Henderson Professor, Penn State University Park

Book Title: The Tower and the Bridge

Author: David Billington

Book Description:

This book approaches my field (structural engineering) from a different perspective: structures as art. The technical aspects of engineering are important, but our students often do not have the chance to consider the integrated role of aesthetics in the process. I have found that Billington's works make us all think about our profession beyond the surface and I often include them in my classes. His book is an enjoyable read for not only engineers, but anyone with an interest in structures as art.
