Aims of Structural Design

‘A good design has certain typical features simplicity, unity and necessity. Simplicity is common to excellence in all the arts-that impression of ease which is usually the result of intense effort. The structure in which evident difficulties have been painfully overcome lacks excellence. Simple does not mean elementary; a structure suited to its purpose and easily constructed may be of great analytical complexity.' Peter Campbell
