In order to accomplish this, for communication purposes, all theoretical verbalizations and calculations are practically left out. Instead, as medium of transmission - another feature of this book - the pictorial language is chosen. In a simplified manner the complex behaviour of structure systems is illustrated and the relationship between structure and architectural form is demonstrated. Thus, the designer - architect, engineer or student - acquires knowledge and perspective of formulating structural ideas.
