Building Theories : For a New Ethics of Architecture, Hardback Book

Building Theories : For a New Ethics of Architecture Hardback

Description

This book explores significant and timely topics for both the design and construction of contemporary architecture by challenging its very practice of theory.

It proposes an alternative definition of architectural theory; one that is able and willing to confront the many contradictions now faced by designers, architects, engineers, and builders who negotiate often overwhelming technological imperatives.

It valorises the, as yet, untapped potential of thinking through building, preparing the foundations for a critical return to the art of making that is architecture.
