The essays in this book pursue the astonishing parallels and deeply rooted connections between the arts of building and of cooking. Both grow from necessity, but also possess a cultural as well as a sensory, aesthetic dimension. Both arts accord a central role to the materials employed and involve measuring and proportioning, shaping and designing, assembling and composing. With articles by Annette Gigon, Stanislaus von Moos, Claudio Silvestrin, Ian Ritchie, and others.
