Profile
" ... the most powerful way that an engineer can contribute to the work of architects is by exploring the nature of the materials and using that knowledge to produce a special quality in the way materials are used. Exploration and innovation are the keys. I have noticed over the years that the most effective use of materials is often achieved when they are being explored and used for the first time."
Peter Rice, An Engineer Imagines, Paris, Artemis, 1994
