Hardcover with dust jacket, off-white cloth with black spine and cover titles, 22 by 26 cm, 160 pp., heavily illustrated with black and white photographs and drawings. The hardcover is very good with only minor corner bumping and some faint yellowing of the leaves; the jacket is fair with heavy edge wear, chips, tears, and yellowing. A scarce and in-depth look at Otto’s philosophy of structure and architecture. “Drew’s standard work is based on both extensive research and intimate cooperation with Frei Otto at his Stuttgart Institute of Lightweight Structures. The book deals with the three important facets of Otto’s work: research into structural systems conducted at the Institute; the application of theoretical findings in architecture at his Warmbronn studio; and Otto’s deep interest in the nature of structure in architecture and biology.”
