When today's leading architects - such as Frank O. Gehry, Helmut Jahn and the THINK team - are looking for engineers to provide structural viability for their aesthetic visions, they often turn to Jorg Schlaich and his partner Rudolf Bergermann. The work of these brilliant and creative men is distinguished by a holistic approach combining science, practicality and meticulous attention to detail with environmental and situational concerns. This retrospective of their work highlights Schlaich and Bergermann's independent projects, including towers, bridges, wind farms and swimming pools. It features nine critical and biographical essays as well as detailed examinations of their most impressive work, illustrating a triumphant alliance of technical and architectural goals.
