From the Publisher. The autobiography of Peter Rice (1935–92), who was widely acclaimed as the greatest structural engineer of his generation, a man whom, in architect Renzo Piano’s words, could design structures “like a pianist who can play with his eyes shut.” Working with many of the world’s greatest architects on buildings that became icons of contemporary architecture (Sydney Opera House, Centre Pompidou, Louvre Pyramid, and Kansai International Airport, among others), he brought a uniquely poetic feeling to his work.

Rice, a structural engineer, modestly recounts how some of the most famous buildings of the late 20th century were conceived and—even more interestingly—how they were achieved.
