In this highly original book, through a series of essays, key architects and engineers in Europe, Australia, and the USA describe the ideas and development behind the innovative technology in their chosen projects, with the emphasis being on the means of production and the links between design and the manufacturing process.
In many cases it will be seen that the desire for innovation arises from a philosophical belief in the application of technology to enhance peoples' lives and culture.
