The Birth of a Building: A New Book by Ben Stevens


We spend most of our lives in buildings, and see new ones being created around us all the time. But the number of people and disciplines involved in a building's creation make it hard to understand the process as a whole. The Birth of a Building is an introduction to those aspects of finance, law, urban planning, architecture, engineering, and construction which underlie this fascinating event.
