Refabricating Architecture How Manufacturing Methodologies are Poised to Transform Building Construction This thought-provoking book presents a compelling argument for moving architecture from a part-by-part, linear approach to an integrated one that brings together technology, materials, and production methods. Using examples from several industries that have successfully made the change to an integrated component approach, these visionary authors lay the groundwork for a dramatic and much-needed change in the building industry. Packed with graphics that illustrate how and why change is needed. Examples from the auto, shipbuilding, and aerospace industries illustrating how to improve quality while saving time and money. Redefines the roles of architects, materials scientists, process engineers, and contractors
Preoccupation with image and a failure to look at process has led entire generations of architects to overlook transfer technologies and transfer processes.
