Refabricating Architecture: How Manufacturing Methodologies Are Poised to Transform Building Construction
1stPublisher: McGraw-Hill Professional PublishingFormat: Paperback
This manifesto makes the case for a new way to think about architecture. It illustrates how the architecture industry must learn to integrate technology, materials and assembly methods to improve quality while saving time and money. The authors present a critical analysis of how architecture is being practiced today: stagnating with a linear, part-by-part approach and argue for an integrated approach. Along with ideas on how and why to integrate technology, materials and assembly methods into design and construction, the authors also redefine the roles of architects, materials scientists, process engineers and contractors to form a cohesive, integrated approach.
