An introduction to building methods from ancient times to the present day. In the afterword (to the 1990 pbk. ed.), the author discusses recent advances in science and technology that have had important effects on the planning and construction of buildings: improved materials (steel, concrete, plastics), progress in antiseismic designs, and changes in both architectural and structural design made possible by the computer.… (mere)

In brief, as the author explains, this book offers the history of some of the great monuments of architecture and an explanation of why they stand up. He describes in detail the challenge of weight distribution, the role different materials play, and equilibrium provided by beams and columns, He then looks at specific types of buildings and how their construction has evolved, from houses to skyscrapers. The next chapters deal with specific structures, including the Eiffel Tower, some famous cathedrals and the domes that characterize them, and some famous bridges. He also deals with “form-resistant” structures. He ends with a discussion of natural disasters and how buildings can (or don’t) withstand them.

The book goes into quite a bit of technical detail, and although it makes for difficult reading, it definitely provides answers to questions you have about, for example, how pyramids and cathedrals could have been constructed without modern equipment, and how bridges could have been erected in water.

Why Buildings Stand Up: The Strength of Architecture Interesting. ( )
  ElentarriLT | Mar 24, 2020 |
This is my second read, the first more than a decade ago. The theoretical chapters near the beginning (loads, materials, beams) are better than the chapters that get caught up in 'explaining architecture.' It's a good explainer book for structure, I'm not sure it's a good critique/history book, but both subjects get equal time. ( )

This had a lot of great information for someone like me; an interested layperson with no professional design training. The style is a classic sort of stuffy academic prose, and in places goes on at length about how much of a genius someone was (the paragraph-plus extolling the mind of Gustave Eiffel being a good example), but its certainly informative and engaging if I put that aside.

I did feel like a lot of what was here was similar to Edward Allen's (no relation!) book, How Buildings Work: The Strength of Architecture, which I read recently. Allen was rather broader in range of topics, and Salvadori more in depth in examining structural design theory and specific historical and modern buildings. It was worth a read, for sure. ( )

The writing (or translation) is a little awkward, but the book is essential for understanding the engineering of buildings. Covers the Pyramids, residential dwellings, skyscrapers, beams and columns, bridges and cathedrals. ( )

(Preface): This book was written for those who love beautiful buildings and wonder how they stand up.
Compared to other human activities, architecture is a young art that had its beginnings only 10,000 years ago when men and women, having discovered agriculture and husbandry, were able to give up roaming the surface of the earth in search of food.
