The Art of Building limited edition book: order now

12 August 2019 | By CM staff

A limited run of 200 individually numbered copies of The Art of Building 2019 is set to be published next month, showcasing a stunning collection of photographs submitted to the CIOB’s annual Art of Building competition.

The book, due to be published on 30 September, will feature nearly 100 photographs drawn from successful competition finalists as well as other entrants whose work merits attention.

The images, both colour and monochrome, feature the built environment in nearly 40 countries, highlighting not just contemporary construction and architecture but also abandoned buildings and historic sites, the commercial and the divine.

From labourers on scaffolding in India passing materials to each other, to mirrored surfaces creating reflections of buildings folding in on themselves, this selection invites the viewer to reflect on what they see.

Each spread, printed on high-grade, gloss Garda paper from Italy, reveals two photographs, juxtaposed either sympathetically or in contrast: some celebrate the built world, others challenge its impact.
