About the Author:

Horst Berger is an internationally recognized structural engineer, whose own practices included Horst Berger Partners and Geiger Berger Associates. His work was instrumental in bringing tensile technology and design into the real world of architecture on a very large scale. His structures stand out both as technological achievements and as creative architectural art. His main objectives were: to create large span spaces with less effort and more grace, to enrich architectural spaces, make architecture more widely affordable and bring buildings more in tune with the environment. His many built structures demonstrate their realization. Since 1990 Horst Berger teaches at CCNY?s School of Architecture. In 2002 the City University of New York made him a Distinguished Professor.
