PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION

THE LAWS GOVERNING the development of constructions don’t change with the passing of years or centuries; they’re fundamental legal guidelines of nature. But I discover it obligatory so as to add a preface to this third version of my e book as a result of of the expertise I’ve acquired during the last fifteen years within the colleges of New York Metropolis and different components of the US.

After instructing architectural constructions at Princeton and Columbia Universities for a few years, I launched in 1975 a particular college program to excite better curiosity in arithmetic and science in younger college students. Many hundreds of children in junior excessive and excessive colleges have been uncovered to this system since then, and the research of structure and construction has attracted them to topics they beforehand thought-about obnoxious.

Our program has stimulated them to remain at school and to carry out properly in a variety of topics. The Art of Construction is one of the instruments we use to current our program to grade college college students. I really feel it’s worthwhile for fogeys and lecturers to appreciate {that a} easy e book on structure could assist clear up one of the issues that considerations educators everywhere in the nation.

 

Lastly, I need to add that though The Art of Construction was written for children, it appears to be of nice curiosity to older œyoungsters†as properly, amongst them some of the architects I function knowledgeable structural engineer. The third version of this e book has been introduced updated on the few information which have modified with time and could also be learn as an authentic work.
