Traditional design and construction methods have been founded on interrelationships between design and production based largely on traditional techniques and established practice. With new materials such as advanced composites becoming part of the architect's palette, the construction process is inevitably becoming more complex. Architects and engineers are also becoming more ambitious as a result of developments in computer technology. The successful modern architect or engineer thus is one who is able to formulate solutions based upon an understanding of the application of these new forms of technology within the design / construction process. In this highly original book, through a series of essays, key architects and engineers in Europe, Australia, and the USA describe the ideas and development behind the innovative technology in their chosen projects, with the emphasis being on the means of production and the links between design and the manufacturing process. In many cases it will be seen that the desire for innovation arises from a philosophical belief in the application of technology to enhance peoples' lives and culture.
