An Engineer Imagines : Peter Rice was perhaps the most influential structural engineer of the 20th century. The hundreds of buildings he worked on include such masterpieces as the Sydney Opera House, the Pompidou Centre, the Menil Collection, and Lloyd's of London. Greatly loved by the architects with whom he worked, it was Rice's imaginative daring and deep understanding of materials and structure that made possible these and many other radical and innovative buildings.

This is Peter Rice's autobiography. He tells the stories behind his best-known works, and describes his childhood in Ireland, his experiences with other great engineers, and his views on materials - glass and polycarbonate, steel and concrete, stone, fabric. But above all, An Engineer Imagines is about the creative, humanist role of the engineer.
