Producing Non-Simultaneity : Construction Sites as Places of Progressiveness and Continuity Hardback
Producing Non-Simultaneity discusses how the processes of modernisation, driven by globalisation and market forces, change the political, economic and technological conditions under which architecture is realised. The book looks beyond the rhetoric of revolutionary innovation, often put forward by architects and engineers.
It shows how technological change during the last 200 years was only possible because traditional skills and older materials persisted.
The volume argues that building sites have long been showcases of non-simultaneities. Shedding light on construction of the past and exploring what may impact construction in the future, this book would be a valuable addition for students, researchers and academics in architecture, architectural history and theory.
