Author:Barker, Arthur
Title:The genesis and development of type

Barker brings a understanding of the making and evolution of type in architecture to the NZASM project in the ZAR, and through researching and analysing these, demonstrates how the rapid realisation of this remarkable achievement in an untamed landscape was made possible by a rigorous and rational programme of engineered components and building types, executed in the main by an amalgam of local materials and imported kits of parts, constructed to strict specifications and standards.
