Über den Autor: Yasmin Sabina Khan is Fazlur Khan's daughter. She writes: In Engineering Architecture I set out to both record the significance of my father's accomplishments and shed light on the indescribable creative process by exploring how my father defined and worked through his design problems. I am sincerely pleased to hear that within his experience readers have discovered not only example but also inspiration. I am happy about all of the encouraging reviews the book has received. They highlight my father's place in Chicago history and his role as a world leader in the design field. But the concluding words of one review, in the Journal of Architectural Education, are especially meaningful to me, as you can imagine: "[Fazlur] Khan also must have been a human being of extraordinary spiritual depth. He appears as a model of what many would like to be."
