TO BUILD by Thomas H. Creighton


Email this review


A non-faddist, qualifying approach for a discussion of post-war building, a need which will be a social one (for housing, schools and hospitals) but which should not be abused by building. Our future homes should be better integrated, correlated with community improvement, the result of sound taste and materials. Here is information on the traditions and terms of architecture, on modern design and what it offers, on prefabrication and what is fails to do, materials to be considered, on the still conjectural advantages of air condit, illumination, and on the function of architect and engineer...A flexible but watchful point of view for consumer information. Different purpose from other home owning books.
