Structure is a fundamental aspect of construction. It concerns both engineers and architects who, however, often speak mutually incomprehensible languages. The purpose of this book is to foster dialogue between their two professions, so as to optimise their common work. Originating from the courses held at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, the book adopts a reader-friendly, lively and immediately understandable approach utilizing graphic visualisation.

By treating architecture as all the changes made by man to the earth’s surface, Leonardo Benevolo outlines in this book the widest history of the actual idea of architecture: from prehistory to Graeco-Roman and Far Eastern antiquity, from the Christian and Islamic middle ages to the century of science, from the industrial revolution to the new relations between city and territory.

Building a place means taking part in the choice of daily obligations met by the people who will be living in it, thereby orienting the adventure of a whole community. If this is how we envisage the architect’s mission, then a preliminary reflection is called for: on the relations that link people together and to their host environment.
