Architectural Technology by Stephen Emmitt

By Stephen Emmitt

Blackwell Publishing Ltd.; February 2009

This core textbook brings together for the first time the technical, legal, social and philosophical issues under the umbrella of architectural technology.

Part 1 covers the influences that affect the way we build - the environmental agenda, the human factors, buildability, time and costs.

Part 2 takes the reader through the life of a typical building project - from briefing, through design and assembly, to use and eventual disassembly.

Part 3 tackles some of the underlying issues facing the architectural technologist - from the communication of details to technological innovation.

Architectural Technolgy bridges the knowledge gap between design and construction, enabling the architectural technologist to apply their unique skill in a creative and innovative way.

"As a textbook aimed at those studying for membership of BIAT this is clearly very thorough and has the recommendation of their Vice President Education. However, it can also justifiably earn its place on the bookshelf of anybody involved in the construction process as a reference and to aid an understanding of others he/she will be working with to develop an environment of which to be proud."
Building Engineer, July 2002
