"My fortune, my great good fortune, has been to be seized, since a child, by a vehement vocation. I have loved this art of construction which I conceived, as did my artisan forbears, as a means of reducing to the extreme the human labour needed to achieve a useful object". "I was born a builder. It was for me both an overriding need and also an endless source of joy imposing upon the crude material those shapes and forms which sprang from my imagination" (Eugène Freyssinet) (Fig. 1, ).
