Why is construction so backward? - reviewed by Austin Williams
We are grateful to Austin Williams, Technical Editor of the Architects' Journal, for his review of Why is construction so backward? If you wish to contribute your critical review please email Ian Abley. We welcome a discussion.
If buildings have become more intelligent, why are walls so thick? Or, to put it another way, in the new millennium, why are construction practices so wedded to the past?
Examining the reactionary consequences of over-precaution, over-protection and the overstatement of environmental problems, the authors of this well-researched and fiercely polemical book go some way to providing shock therapy to construction policy makers.
