Discussion on Tate Modern by J.G. Hirst, F.H. Wainwright and J.M. Shaw

Mr P. Beckman (F) (written contribution) I congratulate the authors on producing a readable and concise paper on such a complex project. Converting or restoring an existing building can often pose a greater challenge to the structural engineer than a ‘fanciful’ hitech new structure. In the latter case, the architect’s or the engineer’s fancy can be modified, if necessary; with an existing structure, you have to deal with facts!
