Construction Site: Metamorphoses in the City.
Glaser, Marie Antoinette, ed.
Construction Site: Metamorphoses in the City.
The phenomenon of the building site runs through our everyday lives, but it largely remains behind construction site fences. With authoritative information and reflection from a variety of perspectives, this volume looks at the building site as an extraordinary place in the city and as a microcosm that operates under heavy pressures of time and costs. With essays on specific building sites such as the megaproject Sihlcity in Zurich or the La Defense building site in Paris, interviews with architects and construction managers, and impressive illustrations, the book leaps into a gap in the urban landscape.
