HASH(0x9a4f2fa8) out of 5 stars Loved this book! Loved Dabby as a professor. Jan. 10 2014
By R. Hill - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This was the clearest presentation of Structures for architecture students that I had found among several different texts. Some were more calculus-based, which works for some, but this was conceptually based and conducive to visual learning. I had him as professor and absolutely loved the class but unfortunately lost the book to a borrower who never returned it.

HASH(0x9aa9c018) out of 5 stars Extremely Helpful for Architects Sept. 6 2012
By Jonathan David - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Took a course taught by Ashwani for the Structural Systems portion of the ARE exam. The instruction during the course was fantastic. As a soon to be registered architect, not only did I feel well prepared for the exam, but I also feel much more confident in my career.

I was struggling with this subject matter under a professor that insisted on using complicated methods. Use this book and you'll survive structures.

HASH(0x9aa9c438) out of 5 stars Perfect for students Jan. 30 2013
By Bill Berensmann - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A clear, easily understood text, perfect for the student being exposed to Structural Design for the first time. Explanations and diagrams provide a clarity rarely found in technical publications. If you are interested in architectural structure this is the perfect guide for the layman or professional.
