Preface (extract)

Towards new behaviours

What would the history of the architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries be without the building materials iron and steel, without Joseph Paxton´s Crystal Palace in London, without the great railway terminals and bold bridge constructions, without the iconic steel structures and high rise buildings of the modern age? Even today, steel is often indispensable when it comes to particularly delicate, wide-spanning or geometrically complex constructions, while at the same time i is gaining increasing  importance in everyday architecture.
