Every so often something really interesting shows up in the inbox.  A few months ago the journal Built Environment asked if I’d be interested in reviewing a new monograph on the bridge designs of Christian Menn.  Needless to say, I was willing, and enjoyed the chance to dive into the career of one of the 20th century’s most prolific and thoughtful bridge engineers.

The formal review comes out later this Fall, but in the meantime there are some gorgeous images and a few paragraphs at Blogged Environment that will lend a nice structures-geek vibe to a Monday afternoon…
