    How eloquently put Dennis.  I might have to frame that.

        The greatest art, is the ability to make an architects dream a
reality.
        There is little distinction between the professions. The creation of
        structural elements is as much an art form as the skin which covers
it.
        Without our structural creativity, Architects dreams would remain
simply
        dreams.
        We are also magicians - for we can create perceptions within our
structures
        that appear to defy the laws of science. This defines the creative
nature of
        our profession.

        Who says structural engineers are not artists?! We can create things
even
        better than artists and computer scientists do!

        Does not it sound realistic? Simply visit  www.uottawa.ca/~msarraf
