Some pencil notations throughout. Oblong 4to. Orig. illus. wrpps. N.p. n.d. (Paris 1983). Robert Le Ricolais drew on mathematics, physics, engineering and biology in his innovative work on tension networks and stress skins. He introduced many architects to the concept of "space frames" or "space structures". Like Buckminster Fuller, he sought a new vision for architecture that would account for its powerful ability to shape the nature of urban and built environments, and human experience.
