Architects and Human Occupancy

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
When people ask me what a Structural Engineer does, I tell them that
"Architects draw the pretty picture; Structural Engineers figure out
how to hold it up."

Admitedly, this is very simplistic, and Architects do a whole lot more
than draw a "pretty picture," but I think that in a few words, it does
define what Structural Engineers do.
