A biography of 20th-century engineer Ove Arup, whose firm contributed to such iconic structures as the Sydney Opera House and Londonís Millennium Bridge. Devoted to a common-sense reform of engineering and architectural practice, Arup (1895-1988) pioneered ways for these professionals to collaborate successfully on large projects. The story includes Arupís personal and social life, his aesthetic and environmental concerns, and his practical contributions during a period of political and technological upheaval.
