Summary
"Known for the "soaring beauty" of his designs and the buildings that realized them, Pier Nervi first made his reputation with the Municipal Stadium of Florence, Italy, and added to it with major structures that maximized open internal space, including arenas, field houses, airplane hangers, pavilions, and concert halls. Aesthetics and Technology in Building grew presents his ideas about architecture and engineering, heavily illustrated with photographs and drawings that show the design principles, means of construction, buildings under construction, and finished buildings. The new edition includes a preface, new introduction, and 4 new essays on Nervi, plus additional photographs of buildings he designed"--
