Andrew Charleson is an  Associate  Professor  at the School  of  Architecture, Victoria  University of Wellington. He joined the school  in 1987  after almost 20 years of structural engineering consultancy experience,  including  three  years  as   an   earthquake   engineering  advisor  in Indonesia.   He currently enjoys teaching structures to architectural students with little recourse to mathematics. Andrew has  two main research interests.  The  first relates  to earthquake engineering. He is the Director of the Earthquake Hazard Centre, a NGO that has disseminated earthquake damage mitigation information to developing countries  since  1997. He is also currently working on a book  about seismic  resistant design  for architects. Secondly, his research examines how  structure  can  integrate with and  potentially  enrich architecture. His findings are highlighted in his recently published book Structure  as  Architecture:  A sourcebook  for  architects and structural engineers.
