Innovation and Aesthetic in Bridge Engineering

Helix Pedestrian Bridge에서 소개했던 적이 있는 Paul Gauvreau교수가 교량미학에 관해 카나다 토목학회지에 기고했던 글

요즘 교량설계 세태를 반영하는 듯한 아래 글에는 백 번 공감

In these bridges, instead of economy, we find extravagance. Instead of clean and efficient load paths, we find flows of forces that are indirect and inefficient. Instead of design leadership by engineers, we find architects playing key roles in defining the primary characteristics of the structural system.
