5.0 out of 5 stars Aesthetic Guidance for Everyday People, January 13, 2005
This review is from: Bridgescape: The Art of Designing Bridges, Second Edition (Hardcover)
The prospect of a new landmark such as a bridge can provoke a lot of passion and debate in a community. Public input is unavoidable and, more and more often, invited as a means of satisfying the people that will live with the bridge. Anyone interested in or concerned about the construction of a new bridge in their community should read this book! It provides the engineer's point of view in a manner that the average citizen can appreciate. Dr. Gottemoeller explains the fundamentals of bridge design as they relate to appearance and economics, which are generally the public's main concerns, and enables the average community participant to understand why some solutions are better than others. "Bridgescape" is a highly recommended read for anyone in a community with a controversial bridge project. It could very well help bring everyone to the same page and more easily reach agreement. Plus, you'll find yourself critiquing every overpass on your daily commute and impressing your aquaintances with your aesthetic expertise.
