David Macaulay (au) (il)
Why this shape & not that? Why steel instead of concrete or stone? Why put it here & not over there? These are the kinds of questions that Macaulay asks himself when he observes an architectural wonder. These questions take him back to the basic process of design in which all structures begin, a process that proceeds from the realization of a need for the structure to the engineers & designers creating the final construction. Gets readers thinking about structures they see & use every day -- bridges, tunnels, domes, skyscrapers, & dams. Focuses on the connections between the planning & design problems & the solutions that are finally reached. Juvenile audiences. Full-color illustrations.
