Description

Cantilever Architecture shows you how to integrate cantilever designs into your building from conception, to help you create support-free structures without the need for columns or walls, whether for balconies, stairs, to occupy the air rights of the lot next door, or to build super tall buildings. The book includes 78 built case studies in 22 countries on 5 continents to illustrate various systems and their load carrying mechanisms at different scales. Includes an appendix on cantilevered furniture and more than 240 black and white images.
