Introduction by:

Peter Pearce argues that throughout history significant innovations in architectural design occurred due to structural innovations, while modern architecture seems more concerned with pure aesthetics rather than trying to accommodate structural innovation. He uses the saxophone as a familiar example of high-performance design. He discusses his own space frame structures, and his work on refining the connecting joint.
