    Structural Engineering is the art of molding materials we don’t wholly understand, into shapes we can’t fully analyse, so as to withstand forces we can’t really assess, in such a way the community at large has no reason to suspect the extend of our ignorance

     Dr A.R. Dykes

  • The resistant virtues of the structure that we make depend on their form; it is through their form that they are stable and not because of an awkward accumulation of materials. There is nothing more noble and elegant from an intellectual viewpoint than this; resistance through form.
