Manufacturing Architecture

An Architect's Guide to Custom Processes, Materials, and Applications

Dana K. Gulling


Manufacturing Architecture is the first reference guide to customizing repetitive manufacturing for architects.

Computer-numeric controlled machines have greatly expanded the opportunities for architects to create innovative buildings.

In this book clear diagrams and narratives explain 20 of the most common 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 more than 1,000 images, this highly useful manual provides designers of all levels with all the information they need to make the most of the exciting opportunities offered by custom manufacturing.
