looking for a good resource ( book ? website ? forum ? vid ? )  which covers structural techniques for concrete buildings with irregular geometries /complex curvature

any recommendations ? !!

Often times, its not as simple as rebar techniques.. Complex forms require complex reinforcements when trying to balance forces being produced. 

A good book to start out would be "Form and Forces - Designing Efficient Expressive Structures - EdwardAllen"  It may not be what you're looking for but its a lot about what you'd learn in a structures course but with more interesting projects and not the rudimentary post, beams and trusses only.  Something you should have a good grasp of if you want to tackle more complex geometries.
