Making use of visual material drawn from contemporary articles, textbooks and architects' drawings, as well as photographic sources, this is a text for students and for architects, surveyors and structural engineers involved in the rehabilitation of 20th-century buildings. Concentrating on those innovations which have had the greatest effect on the basic structure of buildings, it discusses traditional construction methods, fire-proof floors, steel-frame construction, reinforced concrete and timber engineering.
