Why would your structural engineer tell you he wanted to "tune" your building?
Question from Last Week:
Architecture Puzzler #262
Commonly, in nonresidential construction, stairs are designed to have a 7-inch (178-millimeter) riser and an 11-inch (279-millimeter) tread. If you used a 6-inch (152-millimeter) riser, what would you expect the tread length to be? How about the tread length for a 5-inch (127-millimeter) riser?
