Moments of resistance
This book has its origin in a conversation about the contribution of structure to architecture, particularly seismic strengthening in an earthquake prone region. Our early discussions on current earthquake strengthening strategies prompted the question as to whether it can provide a critical comment/insight into an existing architecture. This came from our realisation that many buildings are strengthened either in an indiscriminate 'economical' manner, or have their resistant structures buried within wall and floor thicknesses. And while the latter strategy is concerned with preserving 'visual integrity,' it suggests that the building type and construction are appropriate even when there is instability in the land.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
