Book Description

March 3, 2010 1568988060 978-1568988061 1
There is no denying the transformational role of the computer in the evolution of contemporary architectural practice. Butdoes this techno-determinist account tell the whole story? Are humans becoming irrelevant to the overall development of thebuilt environment? Building (in) the Future confronts these important questions by examining the fundamental human relationships that characterize contemporary design and construction. Thirty-four contributors including designers,engineers, fabricators, contractors, construction managers, planners, and scholars examine how contemporary practicesof production are reshaping the design/construction process.

Through observations, arguments, and detailed project explorations contributors describe new models of practice and reorganizations of labor for the 21st century. Chapters include a reconsideration of craft in light of digital fabrication; anexploration of new methods of collaboration; an analysis of changes in contracts and standards; and an assessment of thenew market realities of mass production and customization.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Building (in) the Future: Recasting Labor in Architecture, editors and Yale professors Peggy Deamer and Philip G. Bernstein ('83) take an important step in grounding the conversation on the use of technology across the building-design and construction processes. The book is a collection of essays by industry leaders, theorists, and academics organized into two main sections, `Working and Making' followed by `Collaboration.' Its main contribution, and what sets the book apart, is that it is not a traditional show-and-tell of successful technology's role as a catalyst for change concerning the `larger issue of how the profession and all the players in it want and need to reposition themselves for the future.'" --Yale Architecture Magazine

"There are books aplenty about how digital design is spurring formal innovations in architecture, but one new book, Building (in) the Future: Recasting Labor in Architecture (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010), focuses on a different, equally important topic: the seismic shifts in labor roles that have accompanied technological advances." -- Lisa Delgado --e-Oculus, March 9, 2010
