Thinking-Making: When Architects Engage in Construction

Penser-Faire: Quand les architectes se mêlent de construction

Pauline Lefebvre, Julie Neuwels, Jean-Philippe Possoz

Editions ULB, 2021


This book investigates the growing prominence of making in architecture through a series of case-studies: design-build pedagogies, material experimentations in the design process, the aestheticization of traces of the construction, the use of reclaimed materials, digital fabrication, the crafts attached to raw-earth construction, or practices of self-building. Throughout its eleven chapters, the book interrogates the promises of making in terms of other possible relationships to materials, techniques, actors and the environment.
