Abstract or Summary
  • Aesthetics should be emphasized as much as possible in a design project without exceeding scope, budget, or schedule to satisfy the stakeholders involved. There is a rising trend of increased emphasis on aesthetics. This trend of using various techniques to help structures blend in or contribute to the surrounding environment has led to more appreciation for the beauty of bridges among civil engineers as well as the general public. Aesthetics development is strongly affected by the relationships between the client, engineer and the architect (if involved). Other factors that affect aesthetics are public involvement and client expectations. If certain measures such as defining roles and relationships between the architect and the engineer, outlining public responsibility, and educating the client are taken, then aesthetics can be maximized in bridge design to the satisfaction of all the stakeholders involved.
