An original and informative reader on the subject of translating architectural ideas from conceptual propositions to physical manifestations, Manufacturing the Bespoke is an essential resource for students and practitioners of architecture, as well as producers and suppliers of architectural products.

At a time where roles, methods and capabilities within the disciplines of building production are in unprecedented flux, this book:

  • A key source book for students and professionals engaged in manufacturing/fabrication projects
