Manufacturing Architecture is the first reference guide to customising repetitive manufacturing for architects. Clear diagrams and narratives explain twenty of the most common manufacturing processes for typical building components.
Case studies from around the globe show how these processes can be customised in order to create variation, lower costs, decrease production waste and use a wider selection of materials.
With more than 1,000 images, this highly useful manual provides designers of all levels with all the information they need to make the most of the exciting opportunities offered by custom manufacturing.
