Building structures - Dr John M. Roberts

Building is frequently compared, unfavourably, with other industries said to have modernised and improved much more dramatically over the period from the end of World War II. A typical such industry is motor vehicle manufacturing, and it is certainly hard to deny the incomparable improvements in motor vehicles today relative to those built only 1 or 2 decades ago. Similarly with aerospace, viewing aeroplanes from say, 50 years ago, looks increasingly like reading the pages from a history book.
