At a time when the technologies and techniques of producing the built environment are undergoing significant change, this book makes central architecture's relationship to industry.
Contributors turn to historical and theoretical questions, as well as to key contemporary developments, taking a humanities approach to the Industries of Architecture that will be of interest to practitioners and industry professionals, as much as to academic researchers, teachers and students.
How has modern architecture responded to mass production?
How do we understand the necessarily social nature of production in the architectural office and on the building site? And how is architecture entwined within wider fields of production and reproduction-finance capital, the spaces of regulation, and management techniques?
What are the particular effects of techniques and technologies (and above all their inter-relations) on those who labour in architecture, the buildings they produce, and the discursive frameworks we mobilise to understand them?
