Creative Art of Structural and Civil Engineering
About this project
The creative art of structural and civil engineering (CASCE) builds upon the thesis of the late Professor David P. Billington of Princeton University, who defined "Structural Art” as structures (bridges, vaults, buildings) that seamlessly integrate efficiency, economy, and elegance. This website (1) contains teaching resources to support instruction in CASCE to a broad audience (STEM and non-STEM), (2) makes a case for why teaching structural art and CASCE is important in higher education, and (3) describes the community of universities and colleagues who have adopted this teaching and their activities (e.g. workshops, conference sessions).
