Its systematic approach with chapters on materials, walls, roofs, construction, and environment offers clear and efficient orientation. Digital fabrication techniques are included as well (complementing traditional production processes) and presented in an instructional book for the first time. The third edition has been thoroughly updated and now provides More information more annotation of drawings, more text on the page. The updated future chapter with more emerging construction techniques. Updated essays on construction in the introduction Chapter 1. Mote technical data in the Materials Chapter.
