Public Lecture #29 – Tragsysteme

Between structural theory and structural reality

Hi Restless Spirit!

We are holding a sharing session about Tragsysteme by Heino Engel. Published in 1967, the pictorial book seeks to explain the mechanism of architectural structures through graphical means and the boundless potential of structure for the creation of architectural form and space.

In the book, structure systems in buildings are classified into 5 different structure family: Form-active structure systems, vector-active structure systems, Section-active structure systems, surface-active structure systems and height-active structure systems. In each structural families, the possibilities and potential of form is explored.

As architects we often design unconventional architecture forms, only to be be baffled in terms of its structure. Reading this book, we can see that there are underlying principles and nature of structure in every form and space of architecture.
