The focus of this monograph on Spanish-born Fèlix Candela (1919-1997) is on modern Mexican architecture and its international influence. Conducting daring structural experiments with materials such as reinforced concrete and experimenting with shell vaulting to find new methods to save costs and material in building, Candela's engineering knowledge produced truly inspirational designs.
