W. W. Norton & Company, 2004 - 416 من الصفحات
The grace and articulate form of the Hancock Center was founded on a bold and exceptionally efficient structural system; the Sears Tower, groundbreaking in its potential for shaping architectural space, introduced Khan's bundled-tube concept for large-scale construction. His designs for long-span roof structures were similarly progressive. For the Hajj Terminal to the international airport Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Khan melded historical context with sophisticated technology to create a meaningful environment for travelers while advancing the field of tensile structure construction.".
