Structures and the Urban Environment

2019-07-03T22:56:49+05:00

One of the most classic courses at Princeton University, CEE262, Structures in the Urban Environment (known as “Bridges”) was founded by Professor David Billington (1927-2018) in 1974.  The course argues that the best designed structures (bridges, buildings, and vaults) are a work of art – structural art – the art of the structural engineer.  The course integrates humanities with engineering through studies of cultures, people, and art as reflected in works of structural engineering.
