ARCHITECTURE / Methods & Materials
Manufacturing Architecture is the first reference guide to customizing repetitive manufacturing for architects.

Computer-aided design has greatly expanded the opportunities for architects to create innovative buildings with custom components. While most architects were exposed to CAD when they were students, few of them have in-depth knowledge or experience with using it to customize repetitive manufacturing processes. This book provides designers of all levels with all the information they need to make the most of the exciting opportunities offered by custom manufacturing.

Clear diagrams and narratives explain the 20 most useful manufacturing processes for typical building components. Case studies from around the globe show how these processes can be customized in order to create variation, lower costs, decrease production waste, and use a wider selection of materials. With over 1,000 images, including photographs and hundreds of specially created diagrams, Manufacturing Architecture is as inspiring as it is useful.

Dana K. Gulling is an Associate Professor of Architecture and the Director of Graduate Programs at North Carolina State University. She is also a licensed architect. Her research focuses on the intersection of construction and manufacturing methods, building materials, building structure, and design.
