This paper explores different
approaches to integrated structural design concepts and
architectural form based on recent case studies. Against the background of the historic context of structural form development, it argues that the definition of the integration of structure and form may be widened and seen in an explorative and playful way, whilst the basic principles of clear structural thinking and designing for construction are becoming increasingly important to maintain the integrity and validity of the structural engineer’s contribution.
