Le Corbusier, the Dishonest Architect
This is not a book for architects, but for all those that have suffered, consciously and unconsciously, from modern architecture and have wondered how it came about. This was largely due to one man, an architect called Le Corbusier. For some he wa...

Reviews of the 2nd edition `I give this book my highest commendation' The Structural Engineer `How I wish that when presented with the theory of structures Millais' book had been available' Professor Derek Sugden in the Architect's Journal `This book has changed my thinking on the subject and made me a better engineer' Amazon reviewer `If architects could be fluent in the basic language of this book, then the design of structures for tomorrow's architecture would benefit immensely' Ian Duncan in Structures and Buildings about the 3rd edition Michael Dickson FREngFIStructE Hon FRIBA, Founding Partner of Buro Happold and Visiting Professor of Engineering Design at Bath University writes: `The new chapters of the 3rd edition build on the successful 2nd edition. Clear explanations, well supported by illustrations, cover engineering in the ground, robustness against progressive collapse and dynamic response to earthquake and extreme loading. A new chapter discusses the difference between structural design of a new structure and that for alterations or strengthening an existing one. I would strongly recommend my students to study this accessible 3rd edition as it offers a clear view of structural performance across a wide range of issues.' Professor Wanda Lewis writes: 'The scope of the third edition of the book is huge: not only does it cover the fundamentals of structural action with reference to real projects, but engages in fascinating forensic engineering, particularly in the new chapter on dynamic that covers progressive collapse. Illustrated with beautiful, hand-drawn diagrams, the book often highlights conflicts between designs led by architectural vision and sound engineering principles. The author reflects on the fact that honours for outstanding designs tend to go to architects, with engineering achievements receiving much less publicity. It is pleasing to see interesting historical facts and references to previous noted work by famous architects, scientists and engineers- something that is missing in most engineering textbooks. Building Structures, third edition, is thought provoking and highly educational; it should be an essential reading for students and practitioners of the built environment in any country.' "This very broad book does a marvellous job of drawing the reader into the world of structural engineering - from seemingly simple concepts to increasingly complex issues. It deserves a place on any architect's or engineer's bookshelf." Review in Civil Engineering, Volume 171, November 2018
