Jun Sato graduated from the Faculty of Engineering at Tokyo Universitys architecture department and established Jun Sato Structural Engineers in 2000. Awards and recognition soon followed, including the Japan Structural Engineer Award in 2009. Neat, attractive and useful, this book reveals the research behind Satos engineering analysis. Sections on Materials, Experiments, Form and The Site culminate in a presentation of structural codes and Analysis Software. Along the way, the texts, architectural projects and colour photography capture Satos working methods, including compelling typological spreads on historic iron structures and Satos award-winning innovations, the Cell Brick and Crystal Brick.
