Guidelines for the Construction of Railway Bridges

To de­velop an orig­i­nal, in­di­vid­ual book de­sign from a es­tab­lished cor­po­rate de­sign was the ap­peal of this par­tic­u­lar pro­ject. This set of guide­lines de­scribes how rail­way bridges should be de­signed, in­clud­ing cri­te­ria and ex­am­ples, and what, through plan­ning, must be avoided. The core con­cept was to make the ma­te­r­ial – draw­ings, pho­tographs and com­pre­hen­sive texts – invit­ing and easy to fol­low.
