Introducing: Building Bad by Jonathan Ochshorn

Posted on

Building Bad by Jonathan Ochshorn is a lively and compelling discussion of how architects need to be made more aware of key technical, social and business issues, in order to understand the constraints they face in designing better buildings for society as a whole. The book examines whether regulation is effective in creating safe, secure and healthy buildings and whether the focus on 'fashionable' architecture detracts from creating buildings which fulfil their role sustainably, safely and for the good of the users.
