Description - The Idea of Building by Steven Groak

We make buildings; and every so often we remake them as they are overtaken by time. The organization of this work forms one of the largest industrial activities in every country of the world. It provides employment for many levels of intellectual and physical expertise. Its products are amongst the most distinctive and enduring marks of our civilizations. 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 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.
