Construction Matters examines specific technologies that experienced major transformations in the last century, or were newly invented. The architectural application of this invention is then analysed with building case studies that are selected based on an obvious formal relationship between the building’s form and the new type of construction that it incorporates. Above all, Construction Matters is a celebration of both the physical and metaphysical aspects of building, through both photographs and text.
