They were first used in the great buildings of the turn of the millennium, such as the Swiss Re Tower in London and the Hearst Magazine Tower in New York. This book explains comprehensively for the first time all of the aspects involved in this new bearing structure. Author Terry Boake has tracked the development of this technology from its beginnings and employs photographic documentation of the construction phases of many diagrid structures.
