Wiping off the dust of any quaint technocratic allure formerly associated with construction, this book celebrates its re-invention with an effervescent effort of research, produced by 38 international architects, engineers, and scholars who contributed a kaleidoscopic set of essays and case studies. In addition, the book features a lavishly illustrated index containing more than 230 dictionary entries that take the reader on an eye-opening journey across the expanding universe of construction.
