Why is construction so backward?

James Woudhuysen and Ian Abley draw on the latest technologies that have emerged both inside and outside the sector to form a detailed, practical alternative to the conventional wisdom in building design and urban planning. This book is a sharp attack against architecture as social engineering and environmentalist dogma.
