The Tectonics of Structural Systems provides an architectural approach to the theory of structural systems. The book combines:

  • structural recommendations to follow during the architectural design of various structural systems and
  • the tectonic treatment of structural recommendations in architecture.

Written expressly for students, the book makes structures understandable and useful, providing:

  • practical and useful knowledge about structures
  • a design based approach to the subject of structures and
  • a bridge in the gap between structures and the theory of design.

Good architectural examples for each structural system are given in order to demonstrate that tectonics can be achieved by applying technical knowledge about structures. Over 300 illustrations visually unpack the topics being explained, making the book ideal for the visual learner.

About the Author:

Yonca Hurol is a Professor at the Department of Architecture, Eastern Mediterranean University, North Cyprus. She has been teaching structure to students of architecture for more than 30 years.

She has published many articles in the areas of her research interest: structures in architecture, earthquake architecture, ethics and architecture.

Review:

'This beautifully illustrated book provides a useful insight, from an architect's perspective, into the often problematic interface between structural requirements and the tectonics of architecture. A particular strength is the large number of high quality graphic depictions of the functioning of a wide range of structural types and case-study buildings.' - Professor Angus Macdonald, University of Edinburgh, UK

'The Tectonics of Structural Systems explains the principles of building structures in an architectural context. It introduces a comprehensive range of structural systems and imparts a wealth of practical structural knowledge that will find application in the design studio. Architectural students, especially, will appreciate the large number of explanatory diagrams.' - Andrew Charleson, Associate Professor, School of Architecture, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

'The author has successfully achieved her goal of a book for students that makes structures understandable and provides useful and practical knowledge.'Peter Swallow, Building Engineer
