Lecture 8: An Early Structural Engineering Problem: the Oxford Connection
Professor Guy Houlsby on "An Early Structural Engineering Problem: the Oxford Connection". The lecture followed the history of a structure often known as a "Serlio Frame" from its earliest mention (around 1270) to modern times. The structure is an intriguing "reciprocal frame" that is able to span a space with beams that are all shorter than the span required. The rare examples of construction of the frame were discussed (including one in Oxford).

Based on a detailed study of the surviving fabric and the Bedford Estate’s archives, this volume recounts the story of the Piazza’s evolution (and eventual redevelopm
