This set of four volumes on steel design by Terri Meyer Boake comprises both an overall approach for understanding how architects design and build with steel, as well as cutting-edge specialized topics reflecting the revolutionary transformation in the use of steel in architecture in the last decade. Among these are diagrid structures, architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) and non-orthogonal geometries in steel design. Boake's books "underscore the currency of architectural designs that combine the tectonic expression of steel with particular attention to the craft of building and its detailing" (Journal of Architectural Education).

Each volume comprises thematic sections that provide a proficient overview of the topic, and covers constructed examples from across the world.
