CANDELA. Garlock, Maria E. Moreyra and David P. Billington

Cl. New Haven, 2008

Book ID: 78622

Examines Candela's life, studies, and experiences, and analyze his early thin shell designs. They focus on the geometric form that Candela eventually used to create his most important works, examine several of the structures in detail, compare them to the works of other contemporary structural artists, and discuss the most important features of his legacy: the conservation of natural resources by minimizing materials; the reduction of cost by intimately connecting design to construction, and the creation of beautiful forms.
