The Idea of Building : Thought and Action in the Design and Production of Buildings Paperback / softback
by Steven Groak
This book is unique in its attempt to explore the many ways we have of thinking about buildings.
In particular it raises questions about the kinds of knowledge we have and will need in designing, making and enjoying our buildings.
At the very least this book provides an overview of the fragmented construction industry, making it a vital purchase for all construction related students.
However, the author has written for a wider audience making the book an essential guide for those interested in the form of buildings or the deliberate ways in which people build them.
