The book“Strutture complesse, libero pensiero” edited by Luca Molinari and Anja Visini, and published by Skyra, focussing on some of the important projects by Redesco Structural Engineering, was recently presented in Milan.
The work of structural engineers who bring form to infrastructures and buildings that change the skylines of our cities, is a “hidden” one, seen only at the building site and then concealed by the façade coverings. In Italy Redesco Structural Engineering, founded in 1975, is a leading exponent of excellence in structural engineering, a company that makes the visions of great architects a reality by creating innovative infrastructures and complex architecture. This is the case of the two main projects presented in the book edited by Luca Molinari and Anja Visini: the Generali Tower designed by Zaha Hadid Architects in Milan and the new BNL headquarters by 5+1 AA in Rome. The book also contains a selection of texts and theoretical essays collected over the last 20 years of work by Redesco, as well as a summary of other projects. Photographs of building sites, designs and plans create a reflection on the relationship between the creative act and design methodology, and the books aims to clearly define the role and responsibility of the structural engineer, as well as the synergic relationship between engineering and architecture.
