Preface to “Why Buildings Fall Down How Structures Fail” eBook


It appeared nearly unavoidable that having written a e book entitled Why Buildings Stand Up, I must be pushed by my associates (and my splendidly pleasant editor, Edwin Barber) to write down one other calledwhat else?

Why Buildings Fall Down. I’ve in the end given in to the temptation of explaining structural failures in lay language,

a easy however thrilling activity, however solely as a result of the coauthor of one other of my books, Matthys Levy, a grasp of structural design, has enthusiastically accepted to write down it with me.
