Williams, Kim


This book presents an exploration of the arch from the points of view of architecture, mathematics, engineering, construction history, and cultural symbolism. The arch, one of the most beautiful ways that architects invented to go from 'œhere' to 'œthere,' spans greater distances and sustains larger loads than a simple post and beam structure, but because it is also more complex, an Eastern proverb called it 'œthe structure that never sleeps.' Leonardo da Vinci described the arch as 'œtwo weaknesses which, leaning on each other, become a strength,' a metaphor for the way that science and art lean on each other to strengthen our lives.Williams, Kim is the author of 'Nexus Network Journal Arches Gateways from Science to Culture', published 2007 under ISBN 9783764377618 and ISBN 3764377615.
