Summary
"In The Structure of Design, Leslie Earl Robertson recounts a storied career in engineering which has generated among the most innovative and formally daring buildings of the modern era, in addition to his extensive collaborations with such titans of the architecture as Minoru Yamasaki, Philip Johnson, Max Abramovitz, Romaldo Giurgola, I. M. Pei, Pei Partnership, KPF, Kiyonori Kikutake, and Gunnar Birkerts. Robertson's large-scale projects with some of the leading sculptors of the day, including Richard Serra and Beverly Pepper, display the range of this engineer's craft. A restless student from modest origins, Robertson first encountered engineering almost accidentally, yet he would go on to be lead engineer of the landmark IBM buildings in Pittsburgh and Seattle while still in his early thirties. He embarked immediately thereafter on what would become his most renowned project, the World Trade Center, to be followed by scores of major buildings around the world."
