Experiments and Transformations. Chapter XI

IN the last chapter I attempted an analysis of the various ways in which the structural members in works of architecture or engineering are commonly joined together, and I expressed the view that the character of those junctions was one of the chief determining factors in the creation of style. It was found that the method of joining together steel girders by rivetting plates or angle irons to the flanges resulted in an arrangement of structural members peculiarly lacking in all the qualities of formal expression.
