Since the first edition was published in 2005, it has been adopted as a textbook at many universities. Organized into chapters on "Raw Materials/Building Materials (Modules)," "Building Components (Elements)," "Building Methods (Structures)," and "Buildings (Examples)," the book now includes a new section on translucent materials and an article on the use of glass. The chapter on "Building Elements" now includes a discussion of facades, and the chapter on "Structures" has been expanded to cover "Principles of Space Creation." The examples section now includes extensive documentation of current projects whose systematic character is oriented around the production process.

    Huge shout out to my professor Marie-Paule for reccomending this. Super interesting if you're curious about the intersection of construction and architecture. Even includes case studies of some more experimental methods. Book is written in Switzerland so not everything applies to North America but still lots to learn.

    this is the new textbook for the Building Technology studio I teach and coordinate for the 3rd Year class at U of A. Very accessible, current in its information, with good contemporary case studies.
