Considered seminal at the time, Patterns had a significant influence on engineering for several decades. Patterns is reproduced here with the kind permission of Buro Happold because of its historical interest and the impact it has had on the development of engineering theory.
Patterns 5 was published in May 1989.
The contents of Patterns 5 are:
- Chariots of Fire. By Ted Happold.
