Designing Lightness - Structures for Saving Energy

Author(s): Ed Van Hinte; Adriaan Beukers

design & construction | materials | NAI010

This book is an appeal to start designing minimum weight applications to seriously save energy. It also offers practical advice for doing so. 'Designing Lightness' entertains the reader with its free associations, creating unexpected crosslinks between the world of composite materials and structural solutions. It therefore precedes the conventional approach to sustainability, which focuses on symptoms rather than causes of environmental overload. The book is of interest to all designing disciplines, combining packaging, vehicles, skyscrapers, and nanoscale phenomena. This is the extended and improved sequel to the book ‘Lightness’, which appeared in 1998.
