|Peter Rice, An Engineer Imagines|
With his imagination and his deep knowledge of structures and materials, not only steel or concrete but also glass, polycarbonate, stone or fabric; Rice got the recognition and admiration of all the engineers and architects with whom he collaborated, especially of Ove Arup with he worked in the Structures 3 design department (great name for an engineering department).
In his book, Rice alternates his memories of youth in Dundalk, Newbridge and Belfast with his great projects; his ideas about engineering and the research of new shapes and materials, with his relationship with Arup and with Jean Prouvé.
