Alle productspecificaties Samenvatting Systematically organised for instructional purposes, this single volume communicates to students and to those setting out on their careers all essential technical and construction basics necessary for the practical realisation of a wide range of designs. This textbook on building demonstrates an integral approach which combines specialised technical knowledge with the lyrical beauty of the illustrated buildings, and background information on cultural and historical aspects. Building is perceived not just as a feat of technology or engineering but the culmination of an artistic, creative act of will which can be more effectively translated into physical entities if the technical principles of construction are mastered. The book is divided into the following chapters: raw materials modules ; masonry, concrete, wood, glass - building components elements ; Wall, openings, ceiling, roof, stairs - building types structures ; buildings examples which illustrate the building process of a project.
